The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested one of the Federal Bureau of Invesigation, FBI’s, most wanted suspect identified as Oyediran Joseph. 

This was announced by the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu in Ilorin where the alleged fraudster was arrested.

He explained that the arrest was as a result of EFCC/FBI collaboration. He was represented by zonal Head, Mr Isyaku Sharu who noted the similarities of the two agencies. 

“Three weeks ago, the US authority had written to us for assistance in tracking and possible arrest and prosecution of two most wanted FBI suspects in Nigeria. Investigation conducted by the EFCC revealed that Joseph had benefited about N60 million from the loot via western union transfers,” he said.

According to him over 50 suspected internet fraudsters which led to conviction of 25 of them and forfeiture of exotic cars happened within seven months of the operation. 

The millions recovered were given to the Federal Government. 

The Zonal Head said that four properties were linked to some of these cybercrime suspects, located in choice areas in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti state.

“These properties include Supermarket, Plaza, and so on, and the conservative value of these properties cannot be less than N800 million to N1 billion.”
