“The suspects were arrested at God City Estate in Rumualgu and No. 23, Sam Mba Close, off NTA Akparale Road, all in Port Harcourt.
“They were arrested following verified intelligence about their suspicious involvement in internet-related fraud,” he stated.
Uwujaren listed items recovered from the suspects to include a blue-coloured Toyota Sienna XLE 2006 bus, a black-coloured Mercedes Benz C240 car and an ash-coloured Toyota Camry car.
