Fake EFCC agents arraigned in Abeokuta

The Ibadan zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned two siblings for allegedly falsely presenting themselves as agent of the commission to defraud members of the public.

Olatunji Beyioku (aka Bashorun) and Oluwayomi Oluwafemi Beyioku (aka Ola 1) were on Thursday, January 23, before Justice Mohammed Abubakar of the Federal High Court 1, sitting in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.

The duo faces 18-count charges bordering on conspiracy, impersonation, forgery, money laundering and obtaining money under false pretenses.

They were allegedly to have laundered over N12 million and also defrauded unsuspecting victims of the sum of N404 million.

“The facts of the case revealed that the brothers had represented themselves as operatives of the EFCC in order to gain undue advantage of their victims,” the anti-graft body said in a statement.
