NYSC member arrested after reporting fraud to police

Nigerian corps member identified as, Ayodeji Felix Olaniyi, has been in detention after he informed a suspected fraud to the police in Akwa Ibom state.

Olaniyi a NYSC member serving in Abak, Akwa Ibom State, is currently behind bars over a fraudulent payment he received from a person he allegedly sold bitcoin to.

This information has been made known by one Olowoleye Olayinka, who gave an insight into what led to Olaniyi’s arrest, Olowoleye wrote:

“Olaniyi was arrested on the 14th of January 2019 (Monday).

He is into selling of bitcoin. He sold bitcoin to a client who resides in Delta State. The client hacked a woman’s UBA account in the same Delta State to pay him through mobile transfer to his GTB.

He noticed the name of the client who bought the bitcoin is different from the account name that paid him. He quickly went to police station (A) Division Uyo, on the 12th January 2019 to lay a complain to DPO about the transaction.

The DPO was not on seat so he met with IPO and wrote down a statement. On 14th January 2019 (Monday), he went back to the police station (A) Division Uyo, to ensure the DPO was aware of the statement he wrote.

However, the DPO advised him to go to his bank and confirm the transaction and to also give him feedback of what happened. But on getting to the bank, he discovered his account was frozen.

The bank then held him and police from (C) Division at Aka Etina Road, later arrested him and nothing has been done about it. The owner of the hacked account who raised the alarm that led to his arrest, is nowhere to be found till date.”
