The Department of State Services recently handed over eight suspected internet fraudsters to the Enugu Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

This was contained in a statement titled ‘NDLEA, DSS Hand Over Suspected Internet Fraudsters to EFCC in Enugu’ released on Friday by the EFCC.

According to the statement, the suspects who were arrested at a luxurious apartment in an estate in Enugu were handed over to the EFCC on October 20, 2021.

The arrested persons were suspected to be apprentices learning the craft of cyber fraud.

In a similar development, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, also arrested and handed over two suspected internet fraudsters to the EFCC Enugu Command.

The suspects, named Eze David and Onyia Steven, were handed over to the Commission on Saturday, October 23, 2021.

“At the time of their arrest, Steven had in his possession 68 (sixty- eight) blank GTB ATM Cards. Other items recovered from him include mobile phones, a Lexus IS350 Salon car with registration number, BWR 977 BR,” the statement revealed.

The NDLEA handed over the suspects along with the recovered items including written statements recorded at the Agency’s office.

The statement partly read, “Preliminary investigation following the handover, reveals that the suspect Onyia is into ATM Card scam as two more blank ATM cards were recovered at his residence in the Southeast course of executing a search warrant.

“Also, a staff of a new generation bank at Rangers Avenue Enugu whose conversation with the suspect was intercepted by the Commission, has been arrested and is currently helping the investigation.”

The suspects, now in EFCC custody, will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
