The EFCC, today secured the convictions of one Fabulous Peter and Osahun O. Aiseosa (a.k.a) Wesley Jackson before Justice D.Z Sanchi of the FCT High Court sitting in Jabi.


A statement from the agency says both men were arrested upon an intelligence report about their suspicious movements and ostensible lifestyles.

They were allegedly housed by one Aleri E.B Sajo, at Cluster 4, River Park Estate, Airport Road Abuja.


The convicts were said to have converted the named address to their hideout and office, using laptops, phones, browsers and other devices, to send emails to scam foreigners and unsuspecting citizens.
