The suspected cyber criminals who are between 19 and 37 years of age include: 23 students of Olabisi Onabanjo University, out of which 9 were ladies who allegedly claimed to be girlfriends and or neighbours of some of the suspects; one from the National Open University of Nigeria and 12 others are non-students.

The Commission got wind of their activities through series of intelligence alleging that the suspected fraudsters engaged in fraudulent activities of obtaining money by false pretences through sending emails to unsuspecting victims mostly in the U.S while others were engaged in romance scam on several dating sites.

At the point of arrest, EFCC operatives recovered over 300 SIM cards from them. Other items recovered from the suspects include: different models and brands of exotic cars, 18 laptops, 50 phones and two bags of charms from them.

Several documents containing false pretences were also recovered from the suspects. Suspects would be charged to court accordingly as soon as investigation is concluded.
