EFCC seals hotel, 3 houses owned by 2 suspected fraudsters


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Benin Zonal Office has sealed four properties believed to be proceeds of crime from two suspected fraudsters,  Godspower Eleadi and Ohwerhi Ahmed, in Delta state.

The anti-graft commission as Eleadi and Ahmed are suspected ‘pickers’ or persons who specialise in receiving money on behalf of internet fraudsters.

Eleadi allegedly sends his account details to would-be victims of internet fraudsters to transfer their funds.

Sometimes, he also solicits for buyers of foreign currency whose account he forwards to would-be victims of internet fraudsters.

Once the victim transfers the money to them, he receives the naira equivalent from them, takes his percentage and forwards the balance to the internet fraudsters.

The properties sealed are a hotel, two completed houses, a building under construction, and four exotic cars.

Eleadi was arrested in his hideout in Sapele by operatives of the Commission, while his accomplice, Ahmed is still at large.

The EFCC says Eleadi has made a statement, and will be charged to court as soon as investigation is completed.
