The arrest of Adewale and Ajibola was sequel to intelligence linking them to online fraudulent activities with two brothers, Lasisi Wasiu Adeleke and Lasisi Riliwan Adeniyi, who are at large. They were arrested at a four-bedroom duplex belonging to the two run-away fraudsters.

Intelligence also linked them with  alleged flamboyant lifestyles. During interrogation, Adewale, a self-acclaimed model, who goes by the username @adeherself on Instagram, confessed to being a  picker” in cyber crimes. He usually poses as a lady to hoodwink her foreign “preys”.

Items recovered from the suspects include two Toyota Camry 2009 model cars, and a sum of N9,000,000.00 (Nine Million Naira only), which was found in Adewale’s account. The other suspects;  Onyebuchi,  Olayode and  Nwokorie were  arrested for their alleged involvement in a romance scam.  They  were arrested during another raid, following a separate intelligence.

Investigation revealed that Nwokorie  was posing  as a female American citizen and sending  photos as a porn star to defraud his victim while  Onyebuchi was  engaging  in a love scam as well as forging foreign cheques.

Items recovered from the suspects include laptops and mobile phones. All the suspects will soon be arraigned in court as soon as investigations are concluded.
