EFCC Hands Over Recovered ¥370,000, $1,800 to Japanese Fraud Victim

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission said on Tuesday that it had handed over the sums of ¥370,000 and $1,800 recovered from a fraudster to the Japanese victim through the Japanese Embassy in Abuja.
The EFCC, in a statement by its Head of Media and Publicity, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, said it recovered the funds following a complaint by one Hatsumi Ozeki on January 19, 2019.

 It was gathered that Ozeki was defrauded by one Evans Ewean-Obayagbona, but the proceeds of crime was wired to him through the accounts of his accomplices, Samson Okonofua, Osifo Onaiwi-Kelly and Igbenedion Iyobor Mikel. 

 While handing over the money to officials of the Japanese Embassy at the EFCC headquarters, Abuja, the Director of Operations, Abdulkarim Chukkol, restated the commission’s commitment to the fight against cybercrime and other forms of financial crimes. 

 Chukkol stated that the agency was poised to sanitise the nation’s financial system to ensure a climate conducive for investment to foreign investors. 

 The representative of the Japanese Embassy hailed the EFCC for the feat of recovering the money and commended the agency’s commitment to fighting corruption
