EFCC arrests 3SC player, 2 others over alleged internet fraud
A member of the feeder team of the Ibadan-based football club, Shooting Stars Sports Club, also known as 3SC, Oginni Oluwaseyi Dayo, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibadan zonal office, over alleged involvement in internet-related offences.
It was gathered on Tuesday that Oginni was arrested alongside his brother-in-law, Alabi Okikiola; and his friend, Jonas Okwuwe; at a location within the Fortune Estate, Ologuneru Olonde area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Monday. Their arrest followed a petition from a neighbour. The neighbour raised high suspicion on the reckless and flamboyant lifestyle of the suspect, without any known reasonable source of income. Upon the receipt of the petition and further discreet investigation, operatives of the commission carried out an early morning operation that led to their arrest on Monday. Further investigation confirmed that Oginni was truly a member of the popular soccer team’s feeder team.
In their separate statements with the commission, Oginni said he is an Ordinary National Diploma (OND) Part 1 student of the Polytechnic Ibadan. Okwuwe, on the other hand, claimed to be a Computer Science graduate from the Auchi Polytechnic, while Oginni’s brother-in-law, Okikiola, said he had a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Accounting, also from the Polytechnic Ibadan. Items recovered from the suspects include Laptops, Iphones and phones of other brands. The commission said that the suspects will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
