The suspects had turned their residence into a safe haven for fraudulent activities using it as a place of abode and an operational office with computers, laptops, phones, modems, sim cards and so many other tools used to defraud Nigerians and foreigners alike of their hard earned money and valuables.

The suspects had created an identity using the names Thomas Jerry Star and John Ben.

The suspects aged between 19 and 26 years were arrested with two GLK Mercedes Benz, One Toyota Camry, Lexus Jeep and other valuables worth millions of naira, which they acquired through the proceeds from their fraudulent activities.
