Spread the love

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commissions have arrested 56 suspected fraudsters in a sting operation at the Ogun State Government’s hotel, the Mitros Residences Annex, and two other hotels in Abeokuta.

 

The EFCC operatives reportedly broke into the Mitros Residences Annex, Ceilia Suites and one other to arrest the suspects.

Mitros Residences Annex, a 59-room hotel was constructed by the administration of former governor Ibikunle Amosun and was taken over by the administration of Dapo Abiodun.

The EFCC operatives were said to have broken into the hotels around 4am on Monday and arrested some lodgers suspected to be Internet fraudsters.

During a visit to the government-owned hotel on Monday, our correspondent observed the few remaining lodgers, especially ladies, and some workers hanging around to discuss the sting operation.

Apart from broken hotel doors, some broken plates were also sighted on the hotel premises.

A worker said some of the suspected fraudsters escaped arrest, while others were whisked away by the operatives.

A lady, who claimed to be in one of the rooms during the sting operation, said the armed EFCC operatives took away about six phones from the room, where she was with her partner.

The lady, however, said her partner escaped arrest, but his cars and gadgets were seized by the EFCC operatives.

She said, “We did not hear anything; it was when they switch off the generator that we discovered that there was a problem, especially when we heard the cry of someone.

“Like six phones were taken from our room. Those people are thieves; they stormed different rooms in the middle of the night.

“The person I was with escaped, but his vehicle was taken away.”

When contacted, the Head of Public Affairs, Ibadan office, EFCC, Mr Tokunbo Odeniyi, confirmed the incident.

Odeniyi said, “Yes, it is true; the EFFC made the arrest of some fraudsters in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

“They were arrested in three different places, so I can’t tell you how many were arrested at Mitros.

“Fifty-six suspected Internet fraudsters were arrested in three different hotels in Abeokuta.

“Items such as laptops, mobile phones and cars were confiscated from the suspects.”

When asked about the offences for which the suspects were apprehended, Odeniyi said investigations were ongoing to confirm that.
