EFCC Launches Manhunt For Fraudster Kingpin Over N53.7million Fraud
The Ibadan Zonal Office of EFCC have launched a manhunt for a fraudster kingpin who has been identified as Abayomi Fredrick Ebiesuwa a.k.a Chairman, for reportedly masterminding the infamous dollar scheme to entrap the victim, following the complaint of the victim.
It was gathered that sometime in May 2013, one of his victims boarded a taxi with three other passengers who were purportedly members of a syndicate, who specialized in hoodwinking unsuspecting victims with an impending danger.
According to her, she heard the three passengers arguing about a Ghana-must-go bag filled with US Dollars in the boot of the car. One of them told her she must be cleansed to avert sudden and mysterious death having heard their discussion.
At that point, she was taken to an unknown destination where she started giving Ebiesuwa, the Chairman, and the other members of the syndicate different sums in cash and bank payment totaling N53, 713, 260.00, which she allegedly got from the sale of her properties in both Ibadan and Lagos.
Preliminary investigations however have revealed that over N9.1m was paid to Ebiesuwa’s wife account domicile in one of the third generation banks apart from other funds traced to his personal account from the victim.
It was also discovered that he has built a hotel located at Gbogbo, Ikorodu, Lagos State from the proceeds of the crime.
Meanwhile the wife, Tinuola Idayat Oyegunle, has been arrested by the Commission and she is already helping the operatives with useful information. She confirmed that the victim actually paid the money to her account on the instruction of her husband.
