EFCC Arrests Father And Son

Men of The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), have arrested a young man and his father over alleged Internet fraud.

Malik Giles Bakare and his father, Isa Bola Bakare are under investigation in a suspected case of conspiracy, computer-related fraud, obtaining by false pretense, and retention of proceeds of illegal activities.

Malik Giles Bakare was arrested on May 31, 2021, by Nigerian Police Officers, Force CID, Alagbon, Lagos and handed over to the commission.

According to reports, His father, Isa Bola Bakare, reportedly appeared before the commission during the investigation, claiming he owned a Range Rover car valued at around 46 Million Naira that was salvaged by his son. However, since the father did not provide satisfactory information on how he was able to procure the vehicle, he was also arrested.

In a statement released on Wednesday, June 9th, EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren said Malik acted as an intermediary between the scammers.

“He connects internet fraudsters around the globe with pickers, and receives some percentage on every successful transaction.”

In other news, the EFCC, Lagos office, arraigned one John Isang and his son, Martins John Isang before Justice Sherifat Solebo of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja on an amended two-count charge bordering on conspiracy to obtain and obtaining by false pretense to the tune of $108, 000 (One Hundred and Eight Thousand United States Dollars) belonging to one Ikechukwu Eze.

The duo allegedly obtained the said sum from the victim under the pretense of having a vessel for hire to transport Automotive Gas Oil (AGO) outside the country.

Meanwhile, a Nigerian lady made a name for herself on social media after she was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) the same day she shared some slaying photos on her Facebook page.

Sassie Dira on Facebook, whose real name we’ll later find out to be Okiemute Deborah, on worker’s day stepped out looking fabulous and made sure to show off her look to her Facebook friends. (Continue reading)
