EFCC acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu said his agency has been able to track down most of the cyber-criminals declared wanted by the FBI in August.
Magu said this today at a meeting with stakeholders as his commission revved up the battle against internet fraudsters and money launderers.
Quote
“Some of the Nigerians mentioned in the infamous FBI list of cyber fraudsters have been tracked, arrested and are being prosecuted in courts across the country by the Commission”
, he said.
Quote
“In October alone the Commission recorded over 200 arrests of suspected Internet fraud suspects in carefully coordinated operations across our offices. However the major talking point for us, was the recent arrest of celebrated social media personality and alleged internet fraudster, Ismaila Mustapha, also known as Mompha and his Lebanese accomplice, Hamza Koudeih.”


Magu said the joint operation between his agency and FBI codenamed Operation Rewired yielded a lot of dividends.
Quote
“The exercise was meant to dismantle the network of organised criminal gang that specialize in Business Email Compromise schemes, designed to intercept and hijack wire transfers from businesses and individuals.

“The operation resulted in the seizure of nearly $2.4 million, and the disruption and recovery of approximately $14 million in fraudulent wire transfers”.

He also mentioned Operation Triangle, which saw Italian police and EFCC working closely to dismantle a trans-national criminal group operating in all the five continents.

Dude I’m currently on the flight out of Nigeria to Australia after 3weeks instead of 4weeks. This country Nigeria is a big joke. So many wrong things going on instead they chasing after things that are not relevant. Few weeks I’m already Australian citizen and can’t be happy enough
