Suspected Nigerians fraudsters may soon return to their country following a major raid conducted by an intelligence team in Ghana.

The suspects were arrested in Kasoa according to many reports.

Items recovered from the group include 46 laptops, mobile phones and several electronic gadgets, Instablog9ja said on IG.
