14 FUTA undergraduates arreted for suspected internet fraud

Fourteen undergraduates of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State were on Wednesday arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Benin Zonal Command for suspected internet crimes.

The suspects were arrested at different residential locations within the Akure metropolis following intelligence on their alleged nefarious activities.

Specifically, the sting operation that yielded their arrest was a response to strident calls to the EFCC by neighbours and parents around the locations, to save their children from being lured into internet-related activities by the suspects.

Items recovered at the point of arrest include ten exotic cars, phones, laptops and one motorbike.

The suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
