A man identified as Ladeji Kelvin Babatunde shown in the picture below was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission EFCC a few moments ago for impersonating the agency to DEFRAUD a suspected online Yahoo boy in Lagos State NIGERIA.
According to a post on the EFCC’s official page, the defendant allegedly impersonated officers of the Commission and obtained the sum of money by false pretence from the suspected cybercriminals.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Lagos Zonal Command, however, arrested the said Ladeji Kelvin Babatunde for allegedly obtaining over N38million from suspected internet fraudsters in order to prevent their arrest by the Commission.
It has been confirmed that the defendant allegedly impersonated officers of the Commission and obtained the sum of money by false pretence from the suspected cybercriminals.
Upon his arrest, a four-bedroom uncompleted apartment located at Ikola Road, Alagbado, Lagos, which was developed with the proceeds of the perpetrated fraud, was recovered from him.
The fake anti-graft agent is cooling off in the EFCC custody for further investigation and possible prosecution to serve as a deterrent to other fake NIGERIANS who parade themselves in various fields to DEFRAUD the public.
