Prison

This was confirmed in a statement by Wilson Uwajeren, a spokesperson for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to the EFCC representative, the suspect orchestrated a fraudulent payment of N9 million into the account of Detwinx Global Services Limited, a company he used for the illegal activity.

“His (Adeyanju’s) fraudulent activities out of the prison yard, came to the fore after a complainant, a friend to a Director at the Petroleum Products and Marketing Company, PPMC, petitioned the EFCC that Adeyanju conned him into paying him N9 million.

“His modus operandi was to clone the telephone number of the director, using same to instruct the petitioner to “make a payment for 50 trucks of petroleum products to Detwinx Global Services Limited”, which he did.

“But on the receipt of the money, Adeyanju found a way to get N7.4 million transferred to a bureau de change operator, who converted same to its dollar equivalent, while keeping N1.5 million in his personal account.

“The suspect is said to have several aliases with which he uses to defraud people, and at the moment also has cases pending before the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, the Department of State Services, DSS, and the Nigeria Police.

"He would be arraigned as soon as investigations are concluded,” Uwajeren revealed in the statement.
