Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have raided the house of a suspected internet fraudster in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

During the raid of 38-year-old Azeez Adebowale’s residence on Monday, the operatives recovered a mini coffin.

According to the anti-graft agency, Adebowale claimed to be using the coffin as soap rack.

He is said to be among the six persons arrested following weeks of piecing together tips on intelligence received on their alleged involvement in internet fraud.

The suspects which included a lady, Toyinsola Bolumole, were picked up by the EFCC operatives at locations around Oluyole and Alao-Akala Estates of the ancient city.

Others are Ifelowo Ololade, Sonuyi Ayodeji, Folarin Olayinka, and Aluko Olawale.

The commission also recovered four cars, various brands of sophisticated smartphones, and an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card from them.
