EFCC explains arrest of groom, 49 others in Ondo night club raid


Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has given a reason for the raid on nightclubs in Akure, Ondo State.

Its operatives, on Saturday, raided the nightclubs in a sting operation, and arrested 50 suspected internet fraudsters, including a groom.

The EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale, said that the operation followed intelligence, which led the operatives to the lounge where the suspects were staging a party.

He said those arrested are being held at the EFCC custody in Ibadan awaiting profiling.

Oyewale added: “No soldier was injured. The operation was conducted to round up internet fraudsters holding a Yahoo party.

“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.
