Barely 48 hours that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arrested a social media Influencer Adedamola Adewale also known as Adeherself alongside four others for internet fraud, the instagram page with which they used to scam their victims has gone private.
The page can no longer be viewed for public censure. According to EFCC, Adewale, 20, and her accomplice, Lamina Hamzat Ajibola, were arrested at the Agungi area of Lekki, Lagos State.
Investigation reveals that Lamina’s younger sister usually calls her sister Dami. EFCC said Adewale and Ajibola were arrested sequel to intelligence linking them to online fraudulent activities with two brothers, Lasisi Wasiu Adeleke and Lasisi Riliwan Adeniyi, who are at large.
“They were arrested at a four-bedroom duplex belonging to the two run-away fraudsters,” EFCC said. The antigraft body said during interrogation, Adewale (Adeherself) confessed to being a ‘picker’ in cyber fraud.
The commission said the model usually poses as a lady to hoodwink her foreign “preys”. EFCC listed items recovered from the suspects include two Toyota Camry 2009 model cars, and a sum of N9,000,000.00 (Nine Million Naira only), which was found in Adewale’s account.
