Operatives of the Abuja Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have exposed another training center for the training of Internet fraudsters.
The ‘academy’ located in the Arab Contractors area of Mpape Hills, an outskirt of Abuja, was revealed when operatives, acting on intelligence, stormed the base on Thursday and arrested 27 Internet fraud suspects.
This is happening few weeks after the anti-graft agency discovered an Internet fraud academy in the Bwari axis of Abuja, where 10 suspects said to be learning the trade of cyber trickery were nabbed.
A statement by Wilson Uwujaren, the EFCC spokesman, indicated that the coordinator of the Mpape center, said to be 30-year-old Emmanuel Clement, and his students were mostly young school leavers, including ladies within the age range of 18 and 25 years.
The statement titled, ‘EFCC uncovers another internet fraud training center in Abuja’, said, “Items recovered from the suspects include a Toyota Venza car, 30 mobile phones, and one laptop. They will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.”
