The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Lagos Zonal Office, has arrested five alleged internet fraudsters.

One of the alleged internet fraudster includes social media influencer, Adedamola Adewale popularly known as “Adeherself”.

EFCC said the arrest of Adeherself and four others “was sequel to intelligence linking her to online fraudulent activities with Hamzat Ajibola and two brothers, Lasisi Wasiu Adeleke and Lasisi Riliwan Adeniyi, who are currently at large”.

While Adeherself, 20, and her accomplice, Lamina Hamzat Ajibola, were arrested at the Agungi area of Lekki, the trio of Israel Onyebuchi, Emmanuel Olayode and Valentine Nwokorie were picked up at Ibeju-Lekki.

The anti-graft body revealed that Adeherself and Ajibola were arrested at a four-bedroom duplex belonging to the two brothers Wasiu and Riliwan. Intelligence also linked them with alleged flamboyant lifestyles.

Also, Adeherself confessed to being a “picker” in cyber fraud, said the anti-graft body.

The anti-graft body listed items recovered from the suspects include two Toyota Camry 2009 model cars, and a sum of N9,000,000.00 (Nine Million Naira only), which was found in Adeherself’s account.

The commission also stated that the other suspects; Onyebuchi, Olayode and Nwokorie were arrested for their alleged involvement in a romance scam.

EFCC is currently at large raiding Internet fraudsters known as “Yahoo Yahoo”, following the arrest of the popularly known billionaire “Hushpupi” by Interpol few weeks ago.
