A statement released by the antigraft agency says the Economic Financial and Crime Commission acted on an intelligence report that the suspects turned the said residence as their office, using laptops, phone and other gadgets to defraud innocent people, including foreigners, of their hard earned money and other valuables.

The intelligence revealed that the suspects aged between 22 to 30 years, used the income of their crimes to buy themselves different properties such as cars which include a Mercedes Benz SUV, a Toyota Corolla, among others.

On receipt of the intelligence report, operatives of the EFCC swung into action and mounted surveillance on the said address, to monitor the activities of the suspects.

After thorough investigations, the suspects were arrested and items, which included several laptops of different makes, very expensive mobile phones, modems, many Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards, amongst others were recovered.

The suspects will soon be charged to court and hopefully prosecuted for their crimes.
