The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested the quartet of Lucky Ebhogie, Richman Kas Godwin, Israel Justin and Precious Iwuji.

They were picked in the Sabo area of Kaduna, following intelligence on their alleged involvement in internet-related fraud.

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement said preliminary investigation revealed the suspects engaged in impersonation and romance scam.

They allegedly faked the identities of United States military personnel on foreign missions to deceive their targets.
