Police Arrest two Cyber Crime Suspects

The second suspect, Salami.

Police patrol team from Area F Command, Ikeja on pin down point at Opebi linked bridge Ikeja, intercepted one Toyota corolla with registration number KSF 462 FT with two male occupants namely, Salami Olaide and Olamide Adeyemi and one female.

Upon reasonable suspicion, both the vehicle and the occupants were searched and some substances suspected to be hard drugs were recovered from them. Investigation also revealed that the suspects are into cyber crime.

Adeyemi Olamide has a Facebook account he opened posing as a female, using the name Sharon. One of his victims is Daniel Nix from California, USA whom he defrauded of an iPhone and US dollars.

Salami Olaide on the other hand, has an online platform known as Grant and operating under the name Frank. He is posing as an agent of the company responsible for giving loans and assistant to people online. 

Once a prospective victim who required their services fills the application form online and pays the registration fees, he will block the victim. There are lots of innocent Nigerians who became victims of such fraud. There is no evidence so far, linking the female arrested together with the two male suspects, to their nefarious activities.

“The victims of such fraud are enjoined to report at Area F Command Headquarters, Ikeja with evidence of transactions between them and the suspects. The suspects will soon be charged to Court,” Police spokesperson, Bala Elkana said.
