Officials of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, have arrested six members of a cybercrime syndicate allegedly impersonating the Primate of the Anglican Communion, Reverend Nicholas Okoh.
The Commission’s Public Relations Officer, Mrs. Rasheedat Okoduwa, made this known in a statement in Abuja on Sunday.
She said the syndicate, allegedly led by Jehu Kwasu, was arrested in Kaduna for using a fake Facebook account of Okoh’s to defraud unsuspecting members of the public of several millions of naira.
According to her, five of the suspects were currently on administrative bail from the Commission, leaving only Kwasu, who had yet to meet his bail conditions.
She also said that the suspects have made useful statements to the commission and promised that they will be charged to court soon after the conclusion of investigation.
