The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested two undergraduate Internet scammers and six other members of their syndicate at the highbrow 1004 Housing Estate, Victoria Island,   Lagos .

One of the undergraduate, Hope Olusegun, a 25 year-old indigene of Okene, Kogi State , claimed to be a student of Computer Science at the Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University, Malays

A petition by a concerned group had led to the arrest of Mr. Olusegun and other members of his gang at the 1004 Housing Estate, Ikeja Lagos where they had succeeded in defrauding innocent Nigerians.

After the residence of Mr. Olusegun was searched by  EFCC operatives, they recovered several items such as laptops, iPad phones, travelling documents, cheque books, flash drives, internet modem, and three exotic cars - a Mercedes Benz Jeep, One 4Matic Mercedes Benz Car and a Range Rover Sport SUV.

On interrogation, Mr. Olusegun had said the cars belonged to his sister who he claimed lives in the United Kingdom.

EFCC operatives also downloaded over 80 implicating documents from the laptops recovered from Olusegun.

“I didn’t stay on the Mainland in Lagos because of stress of friends when you just get back from abroad.”

However, the Commission is making effort to track down other members of Olusegun's syndicate who are currently at large.

In a related development, another undergraduate Mr. Tunde Wasiu Sodiq, and member of another syndicate with close affinity to Olusegun’s gang were also nabbed by operatives of the EFCC at the Housing Estate.

Equally, arrested by men of the anti graft agency at the Housing Estate were:  Messrs. Badmus Akeem O, Ajijola Oluwatosin Emmanuel, Adebesin Olalekan, Raji Resaq O,  Ajibola Adeniyi and Adeboye Lamidi.

According to Mr. Badmus Akeem, “I decided to move to Malaysia to further my education while I do “Hot jobs” as well. I just got back a week ago before the festive period and also produce music and manage artistes.” 

In his statement to EFCC, leader of one of the syndicate, Mr. Sodiq stated that he chose to live at the expensive 1004 estate where he and his friends pay N30, 000 daily, in order to avoid the pressure from friends and relations.

“I didn’t stay on the Mainland in Lagos because of stress of friends when you just get back from abroad.”

Mr. Sodiq said that the Range Rover Sport car recovered from them belonged to his mother despite the fact that the car beared his alias, “T.Wizzle”.

He stated in his statement that the mother decided to customise the car plate number after the name of his first son.

All members of the two syndicates would soon be arraigned in court.
