Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibadan zonal office, on Monday, raided a night club in Osogbo, notorious for hosting parties for suspected internet fraudsters.

The raid led to the arrest of 94 suspects and confiscation of 19 exotic cars, laptops, scores of mobile phones and other items.

Popularly known as ‘Club Secret Underground’, the nightclub is located on the Ibadan-Iwo Expressway in the Osun State capital.

 

The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement said the operation was a followup to an intelligence report that the suspected internet fraudsters were having a party to celebrate their loots.

“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,” he said.

Uwujaren said the suspects were undergoing further interrogation, adding that those indicted would be charged to court after investigations.
