The EFCC is currently intensifying investigations into the shady activities of a serial fraudster, Adeolu Adeyanju, who in spite of being behind bars is still defrauding unsuspecting individuals.
His fraudulent activities out of the prison yard, came to the fore after a complainant, a friend to a director at the Petroleum Products and Marketing Company, PPMC, petitioned the EFCC that Adeyanju conned him into paying him N9 million.
His operated by cloning the telephone number of the director, which he used to instruct the petitioner to “make a payment for 50 trucks of petroleum products to Detwinx Global Services Limited”, which he did.
But on the receipt of the money, Adeyanju found a way to get N7.4 million transferred to a bureau de change operator, who converted same to its dollar equivalent, while keeping N1.5 million in his personal account.
The suspect is said to have several aliases with which he uses to defraud people, and at the moment also has cases pending before the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, the Department of State Services, DSS, and the Nigeria Police.
The EFFC says he would be arraigned as soon as investigations are concluded.
