Operatives of the Advance Fee Fraud Unit of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC Abuja Headquarters, have arrested 25 students of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomosho, Oyo State, for their involvement in various forms of cybercrime including romance scam, love scam, possession of forged documents, and obtaining money by false pretence.

The students, who are aged between 18 and 29 years old, were arrested at their off-campus hostels, following a three-day raid carried out between September 16 and 19, 2019.

Operatives acted on the intelligence report, which was investigated using sophisticated equipment. The raid also followed months of surveillance and monitoring of their activities.


They include Pelumi Adigun, 18; Umaru Frederick, 21; Damilola Emmanuel, 22; Tomiwa Oyewole, 29; Adeleke Owolabi, 24; Oladosu Abdullahi, 23; Abdulmusaq Ismail, 25; Isajimi Joshua, 23; Olaniyan Tunde, 22, and Ebosele Francis, 28.

In the course of executing the search, Ismail, who confessed to being involved in internet fraud, took operatives round hostels, leading to the arrest of many of the culprits. Some of the suspects who jumped over the fence to escape arrest were nabbed in the process.


The suspected internet fraudsters, who are currently in the custody of the EFCC will be soon be arraigned in court.
