The arrest of 89 persons accused of being suspected internet fraudsters by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over the weekend, at a night club, in Ibadan, Oyo State, has caused outrage on Twitter.
Some Nigerians who took to the Platform of Twitter lambasted the anti-graft agency for arresting innocent citizens, without evidence of crimes.
