Operatives of EFCC, Port Harcourt Zonal Office, have captured two suspected internet criminals linked to the ongoing investigations between the EFCC and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI.
The suspects were individually arrested in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, and Owerri, Imo State.
One of them, Ogbonnah Atoukaritou, a leader of a loose syndicate of fraudsters allegedly involved in Business Email Compromise, BEC, was caught in Port Harcourt while the other suspect, Alpha Chidi Egbeonu, suspected to be linked in defrauding a US-based victim, Goldberg Segalla LLP and other yet to be identified victims, was caught in Owerri. .
Valuable items recovered from the suspects include laptops, android phones, land documents, hard disks, Central Processing Unit, warehouse, and a recently built house.
A social media commentator has commended the FBI for these measures against cybercrime and urged them to extend their anti-corruption crusade to Nigerian politicians keeping looted money with th USA.
In that same energy the FBI should assist Nigeria in fighting corruption by providing a list of names of Nigerian politicians with assets, real estate, merchant bank accounts, and investments there in the US ranging to billions of dollars which was gotten as a result of corruption. The double standards is so appalling.
