“On the 8th of May 2023, a petition was submitted by United Bank for Africa (UBA) to the AIG that there are some syndicates that specialise in internet fraud of various banks in Nigeria, most especially United Bank for Africa (UBA).

“They hack into customers’ accounts and move their money.

“Based on the petition, the AIG raised a team of detectives from the Zonal Monitoring Unit, which swung into action with the aid of modern technology.

“The two suspects were tracked down at their hideout at Ijebu Ode, Ogun State,” she said.

According to the official, the suspects confessed to the crime.

“They confessed that they had many syndicates all over Nigeria and used software to hack into customers’ accounts and move their money undetected from any bank.

“The modus operandi of these fraudsters is to have a customer’s BVN-linked phone number for easy money transfer.

“Consequently, over 1,000 customers’ accounts have been hacked, and the customers defrauded are across the country,” she said.

She said that further investigation into the incident revealed that members of the syndicates were from different parts of the country.

She said that efforts were being intensified to arrest all those connected with the crime.

According to her, the investigation is ongoing, and the suspects will be arraigned upon completion.
