Arrested are Emmanuel Oluwaniyi, a Deputy Controller, DC, Nigerian Correctional Service, NCS, and Hemeson Edson Edwin, also a DC, in charge of Kirikiri prison medical facility.

According to EFCC, the duo allegedly connived together to give exaggerated medical reports that warranted a convicted internet fraudster, Hope Olusegun Aroke, who is serving a 24-year jail term, to be treated outside the prison facility.

This, according to EFCC created a chance for Aroke to pull a scam to the tune of over $1 million from prison, using a network of accomplices.
