EFCC Arrests Mother, Son, others for Internet Fraud

Kaduna State Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has arrested the quartet of Lucky Ebhogie, Richman Kas Godwin, Israel Justin, and Precious Iwuji, over alleged internet-related fraud.

They were arrested on August 5, 2021, in the Sabo area of Kaduna, following intelligence on their alleged involvement in fraudulent activities.
Spokesperson for EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, yesterday, said preliminary investigation revealed that the suspects were mostly involved in impersonation and romance scams; faking the identities of US military personnel on foreign missions to deceive their victims.

One of the suspects, Lucky Ebhogie, allegedly recruited his mother into the scam by using her account to launder suspected proceeds of crime. On July 30, 2021, he purchased a Mercedes Benz GLK car for N7 million through the mother’s bank account.
