A 38-year-old suspected internet fraudster, Azeez Adebowale, was caught with a mini coffin suspected to contain fetish materials when operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), raided his house in Ibadan on Monday.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Acting Head, Media, and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, on Tuesday.
The statement revealed that Adebowale claimed to be using the coffin as soap rack, and “was among the six persons arrested following weeks of piecing together tips on intelligence received on their alleged involvement in internet fraud.”
According to Uwujaren: “The suspects which included a lady, Toyinsola Bolumole, were picked up by men of the Commission’s Ibadan zonal office at locations around Oluyole and Alao-Akala Estates of the ancient city.
“Others are Ifelowo Ololade, Sonuyi Ayodeji, Folarin Oladele Olayinka and Aluko Olawale.
“Items recovered from them include four cars, various brands of sophisticated phones and an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card.”
