In Oyo State, 50 suspects were arrested at Alaro Sango, Agbaje Ijokoro and Apete Aladura areas of Ibadan following intelligence on their alleged involvement in Internet fraud.

Some items used in perpetrating the crime, one of the statements said, were recovered from the suspects, adding that the suspects included Badmus Abeeb, Ibrahim Ahmed, Adeyemo Babatunde, Abdulrashid Ajagbe, Olajide Peter, Hassan Atanda, Yusuf Salaudeen, Bello Bamidele, Adewale Tosin, Kolawole Olawale, Nicholas Ferdinand, Keshiro Olanrewaju, Falana Victor Dapo, Abogunrin Emmanuel, Bosun Tunde, Shelter Chibundo, Banjoko Idris and Adebayo Akorede.
