EFCC hits notorious 419 syndicate in Kaduna, recovers fake $570,000


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested members of a notorious syndicate of fraudsters made of four Nigerians and one Nigerien who specialise in duping innocent persons of their hard earned monies.

Those arrested are Salisu Rabiu, a.k.a Maimagani; Ibrahim Idris, a.k.a Dankano; Magaji Musa (Nigerien) a.k.a Maishayi; Haruna Abdullahi,a.k.a Balogun and Abubakar Umar ,a.k.a Fulani.

The suspects who were arrested in a bush along Sabon Gari, Kurmin Kogi, Kaduna state after a search of their hide out which is suspected to be a kidnappers’ den led to the startling discovery of a sum of fake $570,000 and some charms.

The five man gang met their waterloo when they conspired among themselves to lure an unsuspecting victim into believing that some unclaimed boxes containing huge amount of dollars were kept with some herdsmen believed to be accomplices by an unidentified politician.
