Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibadan zonal office, has busted a Lagos hotel believed to be a hideout for internet fraudsters.

The target, as reliably gathered was one Rasaq Balogun, a suspected internet fraud kingpin, whose illicit activities dominated intelligence gathered from the recently arrested ‘police spies’ during a raid on their Abeokuta base.

 

 

The EFCC added that Balogun harbours an army of young men recruited to carry out financial frauds through the use of the internet.
Some other were also arrested at his Beckley Estate residence, also in Lagos State.
The raid on his hotel, Modzak Hotel, at Abule-Egba, Lagos State, sufficiently gave credence to the suspicion as a retinue of young men were caught haboured in his hotel with no specific mission.

The suspected kingpin and 26 other young men ranging between the ages of 18 and 35 years were arrested at the scene. Some other were also arrested at his Beckley Estate residence, also in Lagos State. They were all brought to the Commission’s Ibadan zonal office for further interrogation.
