EFCC Arrests Two Fake Custom Agents

The Benin Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,  has arrested two suspected fraudsters, Sunday Adebayo and Dayo Salawu, for alleged conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretences.


Adebayo and Salawu were arrested following a petition received by the EFCC.

The petitioner alleged that a lady he met on a social media platform introduced herself as a staff of the Nigerian Custom Service, NCS and informed him that NCS had rice and cars for sale through an auction.

According to him,  as soon as he indicated interest in purchasing an empty container for his business, the lady linked him up with another custom officer who directed him to make payment into two different accounts bearing the names  –  Oluwatoyin Usman and Sunday Adebayo for the container and some bags of rice.
