The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Benin Zonal Office says it has arrested no fewer than 113 internet fraud suspects in eight months through its ‘Operation Re-wire’.


This is according to the Head of Operations of the EFCC in the zone, Muktar Bello, who said these on Monday during a news conference in Benin, where he said that the arrests took place between January and August in its area of jurisdiction, including Edo, Delta and Ondo states and was made possible because of the anti-graft commission’s new strategic plans to tackle the menace of cyber crimes in the zone. 

Muktar Bello said that the commission secured 53 convictions during the period under review, while other cases were still pending in different courts.
