The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), Sokoto Zonal Office in collaboration with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), recorded a major breakthrough with the arrest on August 29, 2019 of one Emmanuel Adedeji Oluwatosin, who is on the wanted list of the FBI.

The Sokoto Zonal Head, Abdullahi Lawal, who paraded the suspect in Sokoto yesterday, explained that the suspect was arrested in Kaduna.

Items recovered from the residence include two cars; Mercedes Benz E550; Mercedes Benz C450; an IPhone, laptops; modem and SIM cards

Lawal in a statement issued by the commission last night, added that the suspect and his accomplices both in Nigeria and overseas, acquired retirement account information (RAI) and personally identifiable information (PII) of multiple persons which they fraudulently used to wire funds into newly created business bank accounts tied to the fraudulently created business.

The proceeds were then converted into crypto currency.

He said preliminary investigation had so far revealed that about N 1, 437, 889, 157.15 passed through the suspect’s accounts.

The commission also traced the sum of N70, 000,000.00 he invested somewhere. Efforts are on to recover the money. (Thisdaylive)
