The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has arrested nine Internet fraudsters in Abuja.

Operatives of the EFCC had carried out surveillance for days on the activities of the fraudsters before they swooped in on them.
The suspects are: Edwin Ogbomwan, Okouromi Franklin, Oseji Collins, Collins Onyekwuluje, Anyanechi Ekene, Tony Oviasuyi, Chidi Emeshili, Osaigbovo Aiseos and Osaigbovo Ikponmnosa.
The suspects had turned their residence into a safe haven for fraudulent activities using it as a place of abode and an operational office with computers, laptops, phones, modems, sim cards and many other fraudulent tools to fleece unsuspecting Nigerians and foreigners of their hard earned money and valuables.
The suspects had created a phoney identity of ‘Thomas Jerry Star and John Ben’, which they effectively deployed in their deceptive deals.
The suspects aged between 19 and 26 years, were arrested with two GLK Mercedes Benz, One Toyota Camry, Lexus Jeep and other valuables worth millions of Naira, which they acquired through the proceeds of their ignoble trade.
A statement by the acting Spokesman of EFCC, Mr. Tony Orilade, said the suspects were cooperating with the commission and would be charged after the conclusion of investigations.

  1. I think the president was referring to these kind of guys as lazy Nigerian youths. There is no gain saying that the 9 men should be dealt with according to law.

  2. Coming to talk of it why are they engaged in frauding?
    Probably unemployment if so government should be questioned…
    If they are involving themselves in this fraudulent activity just for fame,greed,more money to have expensive rides…then they hhave to be arrested and dealt with…because it is a criminal act

    • If it’s unemployment, are they the only ones affected?! The reason for empowerment programmes, why didn’t they make use of such?! Government has roles, citizens also do.

  3. A time has come that guys need pay attention to the music sound and plan their future hardly……..May God safe this country and the new generation of our present youth……

  24. That’s a great job by EFCC. They sure really know their job. Yahoo boys and their problems.

  25. wa o are you serious. God is great. one day for the tief another day for the owner. thank God for exposing them

  26. That’s good, thanks to efcc, they need to be more alert, bcos some guys are trying to ruin this nation

  27. Good job by EFCC. Let them be properly and thoroughly investigated and if found guilty be punished accordingly.

  28. Job Weldone to efcc kudos more Greece to your bow this are the lazy Nigerian youth we have who find pleasures in swindling people of their possession, the law will take its place on their case

  29. Unemployment caused it, hadn’t been that they have work at hand they won’t think to become internet fraudster,
    May God touch them to repent

  30. That’s good to dey should be brought to book let other fraudsters learn from these act.atlist number of scammers will reduce in Nigeria

  31. I don’t blame those guys and I didn’t support them, but in a country where there is no job, food os even hard to get what else, country where our leaders are the only one enjoying where others are suffering, country where graduate are doing okada and couldn’t solve the problem of unemployment, won’t they eat and live, if Government really want to put end to fraud of a thing let then satisfy our needs first, atleast

  32. I don’t blame these guys because the main reason that cause this in Nigeria is basically unemployment, if the government should provide enough job opportunities, there will be less fraudulent activity in our country

  33. Too many criminal acts on the rise daily. Where Nigeria heading to thanks to EFCC for this development.

  34. Thatnis good .keep the good work going. This fraudsters have really caused bad name to this country all over the world and the number of people going into this evil business is too much. The national assembly should enact a serious law that will create fear to this guys that who is caught will be jailed for 10yrs or more. Is not easy but I commend EFCC to keep up the good fight.

  35. EFCC on the move,thank God for that work well done,I think other fraudsters will learn from this, otherwise will be caught one day.more strength to you guys

  36. All offenders of the law should be brought to book not only fraudsters… That’s also a good job from EFCC

  37. I don’t know why our youths won’t engage themselves in meaningful things. It serves them right at least others will learn from it

  38. EFCC has done a very good job, these fraudsters defrauding people of their money and tarnishing the image of Nigerians must be severely punished, they must thoroughly pay for their crimes, all this nonsense is stopping now

  39. They should be taught a deep lesson on integrity and diligence in Labour so that they can feel the same pain their victims were thrown into as a result of their fraudulent acts

  40. Please,proper investigation should be carried out. These guys are heartless am telling you.

  41. Survival of the fittest. Although no excuse to be fraudulent, government should equally provide enabling environment to raise entrepreneurs since everybody can never be employed by the government and private establishments.

  42. EFCC at work, thank you for that good work, and keep doing the work as there are still many of them remaining

  43. Good job by the Efcc,they should all face the law.I don’t see any difference between fraudster and armed robber.

  44. they the only ones affected?! The reason for empowerment programmes, why didn’t they make use of such?! Government has roles, citizens also do.

  45. You guys decided to leave the smooth road we here are following just to getpaid and followed the broad Street which leads to hell, now see u guys, see Satan and hell. May God forgive u guys

  46. Is because of lack of appointment that is making them to involved in fraudulent act, their own is even better than politicians, they will fraud foreigners spend the cash in 9ja our politicians will fraud us carry the cash to foreign land

  47. Interesting story ever you know 99 days is for the thief but 1 single day is for the owner look at their faces lozzzss

  48. Coming to talk of it why are they engaged in frauding?
    Probably unemployment if so government should be questioned…
    If they are involving themselves in this fraudulent activity just for fame,greed,more money to have expensive rides…then they have to be arrested and dealt with…because it is a criminal act If it’s unemployment, are they the only ones affected?! The reason for empowerment programmes, why didn’t they make use of such?! Government has roles, citizens also do.

  49. Good jib because it is the sight of these ones that makes others to go into rituals
    Lazy youth leaving above their means

  50. That is good, kudos to Efcc. Those yahoo boys don’t want to work but want to get rich quickly.
    They must not go unpunished

  51. The investigation should be concluded so that these guys go behind bars. Thanks to EFCC for catching these cyber criminals

  52. Nice job EFCC but that is the first step the culprits need to face severe punishment for their crime and the pain they have inflicted on others

  53. Internet has been converted to a theatre of robbery by some people. Good job by the financial crimes watchers.

  54. Kudos to the economic and financial crime commission, you are really working this people must be punished to serve as deterrent to others

  55. Well done to u! I salute your toward the prevention of the activity of fraudsters in Nigeria. I Together we shall build a better Nigeria

  56. Guys are looking for way of survival,but unfortunately what thy end up choosing is a way of destruction.
