This is contained in a statement issued by the commission’s spokesperson, Mr Tony Orilade and made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Ibadan.
He said that the remaining 12 suspects told the commission that they were into various vocations.
He said that the suspects were arrested following meticulous consideration of intelligence reports detailing their alleged involvement in internet fraud and other related offences.
Orilade said that operatives of the anti graft agency in the zone had conducted preliminary investigations to ascertain the merits of the allegations against them.
He said that the commission later sprung into action and effected their arrest on Monday after establishing substantive facts.
Orilade said that operatives of the commission recovered some items from the suspects which would be registered as exhibits and tendered in court.
The EFCC spokesperson said that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded. (NAN)
