Man, 44 nabbed for parading as NSDC On Facebook

A 44-year-old man from Edo State was paraded by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) for multiple recruitment scam and money laundering across Nigeria.
The fraudster (names withheld), resident in New Nyanya, Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, had been defrauding innocent Nigerians of almost N1billion for recruitment scam into various agencies in the country.
Spokesman of NSCDC, Mr Okeh Emmanuel, while parading the suspect, said the Corps had been on the trail of the suspect based on a tip-off during which period it was discovered that that the suspect had been operating about 50 different bank accounts for his illegal transactions.

The suspect, it was discovered, opened a Facebook account in the name of the Commandant-General of NSCDC, Dr Ade Abolurin, through which he rips his unsuspecting applicants of their hard-earned incomes.
The unsuspecting applicants are thereby asked them to pay money into one of several bank accounts he set up for the pernicious transaction.
Applicants seeking employment into the NSCDC, Nigeria Customs Service, Immigration and other services, hence, had been swindled to the tune of N403, 624,992.00.
Meanwhile, the suspect’s other fraudulent financial transactions “amounted to $950,000.00; other transaction involving money laundry amount to N552, 371,901.50.”
The NSCDC spokesman disclosed that from all his over fifty bank accounts, the total sum of N955, 886,893.50 has passed to and fro.
Also on display were copies of fake employment letters of NSCDC, Nigeria Immigration Service, and Custom Service which were printed from the suspect’s laptop.
It was also made known that the suspect while carrying out his nefarious activities indicated that he had effected the deployment of applicants to Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states.
The suspect had been handed over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for further investigation. His charges ranges from internet fraud to money laundry.
On a final note, spokesman of NSCDC, Mr Okeh Emmanuel said: “The Commandant General of the Corps does not operate any Facebook account for the purpose of recruitment and the Corps has never been involved in online recruitment. Therefore, anyone who patronizes fraudsters online does that at their own risk.”
