The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, arrested a student of The Polytechnic, Ibadan and two other suspected internet fraudsters.

They were picked up at Ologuneru and Olodo areas of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital after days of surveillance mounted on them to test the veracity of allegations of fraudulent activities and flamboyant life without tangible source of income leveled against them in series of petitions authored by their neighbours.

The internet fraud suspects are Ajaguna Quadri Biola (27years), Nafiu Moshood (23years) and Anuoluwapo James Olasupo (22years).

At the time of his arrest, Biola, who claimed to be an undergraduate of the Polytechnic, Ibadan, was in possession of one 2008 Toyota Camry car, two laptops, one iPhone X, two internet modems and one smartwatch.

Mosheed said he is a student of Alayande College of Education, Oyo State. Items recovered from him are one iphone 8 plus, one Tecno phone and one laptop.

In his own statement, Olasupo claimed to be a phone engineer. Two laptops, one phone and one mobile wifi were recovered from him.

The EFCC operatives said the suspects will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
