Four suspected Internet fraudsters docked by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Ibadan have been remanded in prison custody.
The suspects, Samuel Afolabi Afolabi, Olanrewaju Idris Arogundade, Omolanbe Sogo Oluwafemi and Adedapo John Adeagbo were docked before a Federal High Court in Ibadan presided over by Justice Patricia Ajoku.
They were arraigned separately on different count charges that border on possession of fake documents containing false pretences, fraudulent impersonation with intent to defraud and other internet related offences.
They all pleaded not guilty to the offences when read to them.
Due to the not-guilty plea, the EFCC counsel, Oyediran Oyelakin, prayed the court to remand the accused in prison pending the next adjourned date.
However, counsel to Olanrewaju and Adedapo filed for their bail applications.
Justice Ajoku has fixed November 4 and 5 for hearing on their respective bail applications.
