Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday raided a nightclub in Osogbo, Osun state capital, where suspected internet fraudsters hold parties.

Wilson Uwujaren, spokesman of the commission, announced this in a statement.

Popularly known as “Club Secret Underground”, the nightclub is located on the Ibadan-Iwo expressway in the state capital.

Uwujaren said the raid led to the arrest of 94 suspects and “confiscation of 19 exotic cars, laptops, scores of sophisticated mobile phones and other items”.

“The wee-hour operation was sequel to an intelligence report hinting that the suspected internet fraudsters were organising a night party for Sunday, October 13 during which some of them intended to celebrate their loot,” the statement read.

“A discreet operation on the club had earlier been carried out to ascertain the authenticity of the intelligence.

“The confirmation led to the mega raid effected on Monday. The suspects are currently undergoing further interrogation, and those indicted would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.”

The EFCC has launched a manhunt for suspected fraudsters nationwide.
