(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Operatives of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ilorin Zonal Office have arrested Joseph Oyediran, one of the internet fraudsters wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

EFCC’s spokesman Mr Wilson Uwujaren in a statement in Abuja on Friday quoted the Zonal Head of the commission Mr Isyaku Sharu as disclosing  this when he gave an update on the EFCC/FBI collaboration in the fight against internet fraud and cyber crime.

His words:

 “Three weeks ago, the U.S. 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 Oyediran had benefited about N60 million from the loot via western union transfers.”

“We have also secured the conviction of 25 of them, recovered exotic cars from them, which were proceeds of their illegal activities.”

He said that the acting EFCC Chairman, Mr Ibrahim Magu had expressed resolve to ensure that the anti-graft agency effectively coordinated the Nigerian end of the investigation with the FBI.

Mr Sharu added that within seven months of its operations in Ilorin, the EFCC had revved up efforts to rid the country of cyber crime resulting in the arrest of more than 50 persons involved in internet fraud.
