A statement by the commission’s spokesperson, Tony Orilade, said the suspects were arrested at Akoto Estate, Elebu area in Ibadan during an early morning raid carried out by operatives of the commission.

It said the team of the commission had earlier conducted series of surveillance and worked on strings of intelligence gathered on activities of the suspects.

The EFCC said preliminary investigation conducted was found to be credible, leading to the sting operation.
