The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed how a suspect, Adeolu Adeyanju, is still defrauding unsuspecting individuals despite being put behind bars.
According to a statement signed by the commission’s spokesman, Wilson Uwajeren, the suspect impersonated the director, Petroleum Products and Marketing Company (PPMC) by cloning his phone number and using same to instruct unsuspecting businessmen to make payment for trucks of petroleum products to Detwinx Global Services Limited.
After payment had been made, the suspect would transfer about 80 percent of the money to a certain bureau de change operator, and kept the rest in his bank account.
Uwajeren, who said that the EFCC was intensifying investigations into the shady activities of the serial fraudster, disclosed that Adeyanju’s fraudulent activities from the prison yard came to the fore after a complaint by one of his victims.
