Nigerian man with 2,886 ATM cards caught trying to travel to Dubai

The Lagos zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has commenced investigations of a suspected fraudster for concealing 2,886 Automated Teller Machine (ATM) cards and four Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards in noodles. The suspect:  Ishaq Abubakar was handed over to the EFCC  by  the Nigeria Customs Service on Thursday, September 10, 2020 for investigation and prosecution.

Abubakar got into trouble when he was  arrested by officers of the Customs Service at the Murtala Muhammed  International Airport, Lagos,  on his way to Dubai with 2, 886 Automated Teller Machine (ATM) cards and four Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards carefully concealed in parks of noodles.

Bako, who represented the Customs Area Comptroller, A. Ma’aji, added that “The suspect, who claimed to have come from Kano to travel to Dubai aboard the Emirate Evacuation flight, was seen with someone who was assigned to facilitate his movement through the airport checks. “This raised the suspicion of the officers who insisted he should be physically and thoroughly checked after the scan machine had revealed he was carrying parks of noodles”, he said.
