Son, mother in EFCC net for alleged N50m internet fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Lagos Zonal Office, on Friday, arrested Ibeh Theophilus Uche, Chief Executive Officer of 10 Kobo Wine Place located in the Ikotun area of Lagos State.

Uche was arrested alongside his mother for their alleged involvement in computer-related fraud to the tune of about N50m, a crime said to have been committed in Lagos.

The EFCC in a statement on Saturday by its Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, indicated that the 28-year-old suspect was arrested recently in his room in Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, following credible intelligence about his alleged criminal activities.

It was gathered that during interrogation, Uche, who presents himself variously as Rachael Armstrong, Keanu Reeves, Rebekah Schwarzenberger, Keanu Private, Elizabeth Hortman and Stefan Paulson, confessed to being into Bitcoin investment scam, romance scam and identity theft.

The suspect, according to the statement, also confessed to have defrauded his victims to the tune of about N50m since he began the criminal activities in 2020.

The statement further revealed, “The suspect had been using a First Bank account belonging to his mother, who is one of his accomplices, to launder the proceeds of his alleged criminal activities.

“Items recovered from the suspect are one iPhone 11 Pro Max; one iPhone 12 pro max; two MacBook Pro laptops; a PlayStation 5; an iPad and a small Nokia touch phone.”

Others items are a Mercedes Benz S550 2015, Sedan car and a Lexus RX 350 SUV 2016, among other incriminating items.

The suspect, according to the EFCC, will soon be charged to court.
