Five Internet Fraudsters Arrested In Lagos Over N53million Scam
Lagos – A Lagos High Court presided over by Justice Christopher Balogun yesterday admitted as exhibits, three laptops and two internet modems tendered as evidence in a case of internet fraud and obtaining money by pretext filed against suspected fraudsters (a.k.a Yahoo boys).
The defendants were alleged to have on April 27, 2012 within the Ikeja Judicial Division, with intent to defraud, conspired to obtain $210,000,00 equivalent of N53,577.597 million from one Kabiru Sanni.
The suspects, Chris Nwaigwe (34), Farouk Balogun (28), Fawas Animashaun (29), Damilola Ali (28) and Olasunkanmi Banire (27), were first arraigned on October 31, 2012 on a 21-count charge bordering on forgery, obtaining money by pretext and internet fraud.
While admitting the exhibits, Balogun dismissed the objection of the defence counsel and ordered that items be taken as evidence.
Earlier, a prosecution witness, Babatunde Shittu of the Advance Fee Fraud, AFF, department of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, told the court that the defendants were arrested following a petition written by one Kabiru Sanni, a bureau de change operator.
Narrating how the defendants were arrested, Shittu said: “We told Mr. Sanni to set up a meeting with the first defendant at one eatery in Lekki where we arrested him and took him to his house at No 13, Bamgbala Street, Elegushi, Lagos.
“When we got to his resident, we recovered two laptops, two internet modems and a laptop charger which we took to our office along with the defendants.”
