The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has clarified the raid on Akure nightclubs where a groom and 49 other suspected internet fraudsters were arrested on Saturday.

It’s spokesperson, Dele Oyedele, said that it was “carried out after a thorough intelligence gathering which led them to the lounge where the alleged fraudsters were staging a party.

Oyedele said the raid “was an early morning sting operation.

“No soldier was injured. The operation was carried out to round up some internet fraudsters holding a Yahoo party,” he said.

“They were supposed to hold the party on Wednesday, and when they found out that we knew about it, they moved it to Saturday.

“The arrest was a result of diligent operation and we had followed them carefully before we eventually went for the arrest.”

Mr Oyewale added that those arrested were in the agency’s custody in Ibadan and were undergoing profiling.

He noted that detailed briefing would be given after some work was done on the identity of those arrested and the items recovered from them.”
