The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says it arrested twin brothers Taiwo and Kehinde Adio alongside five others over alleged internet fraudulent activities in Ibadan, Oyo.
EFCC spokesperson Dele Oyewale disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.
According to the statement, the suspects were arrested on December 7 in the Apete and Apata areas of Ibadan, following surveillance and actionable intelligence on their suspected involvement in internet-related offences.
“The five other suspects are Jeremiah Gabi, Dennis Gomina, Adepoju Ibukun, Olabode Opeyemi and Adewumi Ayomide. In the same vein, the Oyo state police command handed over three suspected internet fraudsters to the Ibadan zonal command of the EFCC on December 7. They were arrested by the police while on patrol.
“Investigations carried out by the EFCC revealed that one of the three suspects was not involved in internet fraud and was released immediately without any bail condition. The two suspects are Joseph Isaac Justice and Ayoola Oluwatosin,” the anti-graft agency said.
It revealed that items recovered from the suspected fraudsters included one Toyota Corolla car, an iPhone 11, and two Samsung mobile phones.
