A surprise dawn raid on two houses in the Lekki area of Lagos on April 6, yielded the arrest of seven suspects, all undergraduates studying various courses in some of the nation’s tertiary institutions.

The suspects have all made useful statements. One of them, Shola Muyiwa, confessed that, he recently collected $100 from one of his victims, Dora Hunt, based in North Carolina, United States of America.

Various items were recovered from the suspects such as laptop computers, expensive phones, Ipads and exotic cars, including a Range Rover Evogue; Honda Crosstour , Mercedeze Benz C 300 4matic, S 300 Mercedes Benz and Acura ZDX SUV.

The suspects will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.

  8. EFCC should chance the biting creatures ie Boko Haram and their sponsors rather than arresting innocent students who must survive the harsh situation.

    • May Boko Haram find Efcc and bomb dem since dem no get single sense, because you fools are in power so you abuse it by arresting the innocent, why have you not arrested GEJ, Tinubu, David Mark, Lamidu Sanusi, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and the rest of the legal thieves in govt sits? and you fools talking trash shut up your mouth and die

U guys are all blaming the govt and saying efcc shld free them, for young graduates who have decided to be yahoo boys @ d expense of their academics. The schools mentioned are all in session apart from lasu, and they are in lagos staying in luxury cars and living in high brough areas. God help us wth this our crime mentality. No excuse can justify a criminal act so they must face justice.
