Two Nigerian undergraduates and six others were on Friday arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for internet fraud. They were all picked up from their operational base at the highbrow 1004 Housing Estate, Victoria Island, Lagos.



One of the undergraduates, Hope Olusegun, a 25 year-old indigene of Okene, Kogi State, who claimed to be a student of Computer Science at the Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University, Malaysia, was arrested by operatives of EFCC over allegations of fraud and internet scam.

The arrest of the scammers followed a petition to the EFCC over the nefarious activities of Olusegun and his accomplices who have been using the 1004 base to engage in fraudulent activities of obtaining money by false pretences and forgery online.

The EFCC said yesterday that following the petition, its operatives swooped on Olusegun’s apartment and discovered various items which were being used for the fraud.

The recovered items included laptops, iPad phones, travelling documents, cheque books, flash drives, Internet modem, and three exotic cars – a Mercedes Benz Jeep, One 4-Matic Mercedes Benz Car and a Range Rover Sport SUV.

Olusegun however denied ownership of the exotic cars when confronted by security operatives, claiming that they belonged to his uncle who lives in the United Kingdom.

Operatives of the EFCC also downloaded over 80 implicating documents from the laptops recovered from Olusegun. However, the Commission is making efforts to track down other members of Olusegun’s syndicate who are currently at large.

Tunde Wasiu Sodiq, another undergraduate and member of another internet fraud syndicate with close affinity with Olusegun’s gang was also arrested by the EFCC at the Estate.
