Date: 2022-08-08

Operatives of the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday, arrested three internet fraud suspects at the Ilorin International Airport, Kwara state.

This is part of the renewed crusade against corruption and illegal movement of cash through Nigeria’s airports.

They are Olawale Ipadeola, Opeyemi Badmus and Wasiu Babatunde.

They were arrested on Monday morning, except for Wasiu whose arrest happened on Saturday, August 6, 2022 following actionable intelligence.

According to a statement by the Media Unit of the Command in Ilorin on Monday, two of the suspects Olawale and Opeyemi, who flew in from Lagos landed at the Ilorin airport around 1156hours to the waiting hands of the eagle-eyed operatives of the EFCC at the airport.

Preliminary investigations about their activities have shown that the suspects possessed several fraudulent documents on their devices.

Upon interrogation, the suspects confessed to the crime and admitted ownership of different brands of phones and laptops recovered from them at the point of arrest.

The suspects will be charged to court upon the conclusion of the ongoing investigations.
