EFCC arrests 13 suspected internet fraudsters at Nsukka



On Friday, the Head of Media and Publicity of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Wilson Uwujaren, said, operatives of the Enugu Zonal Command of the EFCC have arrested 13 suspected internet fraudsters at the Nsukka and Emene axis of Enugu State.

He said the suspects were arrested on Tuesday during a sting operation following some verified intelligence by the EFCC and recovered five laptops, phones and a silver-coloured Lexus car with registration number: FST 823 GD.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is a Nigerian law enforcement agency that investigates financial crimes such as advance fee fraud (419 fraud) and money laundering.

The EFCC was established in 2003, partially in response to pressure from the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF), which named Nigeria as one of 23 countries non-cooperative in the international community’s efforts to fight money laundering. The agency has its head office in Abuja, Nigeria.
