According to a woman who claimed to have been in one of the rooms during the sting operation, armed EFCC agents grabbed roughly six phones from the room where she and her companion were.
The lady, on the other hand, claimed that while her partner escaped incarceration, the EFCC seized his automobiles and electronic devices.
“We didn’t hear anything; it was only when they turned off the generator that we realized there was an issue, especially when we heard someone cry,” she explained.
“Our room had about six phones taken from it. Those people are crooks who broke into various rooms in the middle of the night.
“The individual I was with managed to flee, but his vehicle was seized.”
Mr Tokunbo Odeniyi, the EFCC’s Head of Public Affairs in Ibadan, confirmed the occurrence when contacted.
“Yes, that is true; the EFFC arrested some scammers in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State,” Odeniyi stated.
“I can’t tell you how many were detained at Mitros since they were arrested in three different areas.
“In three different hotels in Abeokuta, 56 suspected Internet fraudsters were apprehended.
“Laptops, cellphones, and automobiles were confiscated from the suspects.”
When asked about the crimes for which the individuals were arrested, Odeniyi responded that the investigation was still ongoing.
