One other was arrested at Queens Estate, Gwarimpa. They were nabbed after intelligence on their alleged involvement in cybercrime.

EFCC said their lifestyle, which was not supported by any legitimate means of livelihood, gave them away.

Uwujaren disclosed that preliminary investigation indicated the suspects were involved in romance scam on social media.
