The wee-hour operation was sequel to an intelligence report, hinting that the suspected internet fraudsters were organising a night party for Sunday, October 13, 2019, during which some of them intended to celebrate their loots.

A discreet operation on the club had earlier been carried out to ascertain the authenticity of the intelligence.

The confirmation led to the mega raid effected on Monday.

The suspects are currently undergoing further interrogation, and would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
