A mini-coffin suspected to contain fetish materials was found with a 38-year-old alleged internet fraudster, Azeez Adebowale, when operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) raided his house in Ibadan on Monday.
Adebowale, who claimed that the coffin was a soap rack, was among the six persons arrested following weeks of piecing together intelligence received about their alleged involvement in internet fraud.
The suspects, including a lady, Toyinsola Bolumole, were picked up by men of the commission’s Ibadan zonal office at locations around Oluyole and Alao-Akala estates. Others were Ifelowo Ololade, Sonuyi Ayodeji, Folarin Oladele Olayinka, and Aluko Olawale.
Items recovered from them included four cars, various brands of sophisticated phones and an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card.
