The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Lagos Zonal Office, have commenced investigation into an alleged case of conspiracy, computer-related fraud, obtaining by false pretense and retention of proceeds of unlawful activities levelled against one Malik Giles Bakare.

EFCC Spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, in a press statement Wednesday in Abuja, said they were arrested by officers of the Nigeria Police, Force CID, Alagbon, Lagos on May 31, 2021, and subsequently handed over to the EFCC for further investigation and prosecution.

He said investigations revealed that they act as a middleman, who connect internet fraudsters around the globe with pickers, and receives some percentage on every successful transaction from the proceeds of unlawful activities.

According to Iwujaren, "During the investigation, his father, Isa Bola Bakare, appeared at the Commission claiming ownership of a Range Rover car estimated at about N46 Million, which was recovered from his son.

"He, however, could not provide a satisfactory account of how he was able to procure the vehicle. Consequently, he has also been taken into the EFCC custody for further investigation."

The Spokesperson said Iphone 12 Pro Max,  Iphone 8 mobile devices as well as some incriminating items were recovered from the suspects.

He said the suspects would soon be charged to court.
