Abuja - Two suspects are set to appear in
court soon following their arrest in connection with fraud running to thousands
of United States Dollars.
The suspects, Arinze Ihekwo and Chinemelu Utaku, are
to be arraigned on a 13-count charge bordering on alleged
Internet fraud, email hacking and obtaining money by false pretence.
They will appear before the Federal High Court, Asaba,
Delta State, at a date yet to be confirmed.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has
arrested the duo on suspicion of membership to a syndicate.

It is alleged Ihekwo, in November 2013, in Asaba,
retained the sum of $34 020 domiciled at Guaranty Trust Bank, raising
allegations of money laundering.
EFCC launched investigation into their activities, following
a petition by the Department of State Service.
The service informed that one Clifford Okemmuo had, in a
separate matter, disclosed that Ihekwo (alias Christian Ihekwo Arinze),
belonged to a syndicate that specialised in cloning unsuspecting victims’
emails in order to trap their financial- related transactions. - CAJ News
