During interrogation, one of the suspects, Obanewo Kayode, told EFCC operatives that he committed the crime.

He said: “I was arrested on June 11 at Mandate Estate Phase II, but before the day of my arrest, I met a friend who introduced me to Internet fraud. He gave me a laptop, which

was the reason behind my arrest. I saw one email address on the laptop and I started using it to chat with some people at night when I come back from work.”
