Agents of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibadan zonal office, recently invaded an Osogbo-based nightclub, popularly known for hosting numerous parties attended by suspected internet fraudsters.

The invasion resulted in the arrest of 94 suspects. The EFCC agents also confiscated 19 exotic cars, laptops, sophisticated mobile phones and other valuable items.

The club, located on the Ibadan-Iwo Expressway of the Osun State capital, was identified as Club Secret Underground.

The operation was carried out following an important tip-off that suggested that the suspected internet fraudsters were organising a night party where the Yahoo Boys would party all night to celebrate their looted money.

The operation was carried out discreetly by the EFCC agents, as they had already sent out spies to the club to ascertain the authenticity of the intelligence. After the confirmation, the EFCC agents conducted a massive invasion on Monday morning.

According to sources in the commission, the suspects are currently being interrogated and would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
