Adetoyese, 28, was detained in Ogele, Eyenkorin in the Asa Local Government Area of Kwara State. Adetoyese is from Ilesa, which is a local government area in Osun State’s Ilesa West.

Wilson Uwajuaren, the EFCC’s head of media and publicity, said in a statement on Thursday that the suspect’s arrest came as a result of reliable information on Internet fraudsters’ activities in the Ilorin metropolis and its surroundings.

A laptop, an iPhone 11 Promax, a Samsung S9 Plus, a Lexus automobile valued at N4 million, and other items were purportedly found on the suspect.

“In the course of investigation, Adetoyese revealed that he ventured into Yahoo Yahoo in 2016 and had, among other things, built a house and sponsored himself in school with the proceeds of the illegal activities.

“The suspects are Muhammed Soliu and Olayiwola Saheed, an aluminum fabricator.

“Upon interrogation, Muhammed, 25, confessed that he joined Yahoo-Yahoo in 2020 and specialised in dating/love scam. According to him, he had bought a Toyota Camry worth N2.7m and built a house with the proceeds of the illegal activities.

“In the same token, Olayiwola, 30, who claimed to be a ‘loader’ in the Yahoo-Yahoo business, confessed to have bought a Toyota Camry worth over N2m with the proceeds of the alleged crime,” the statement added.
