EFCC confirms the arrest of two suspected fraudsters in Skales’ residence

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has issued a fresh statement confirming the arrest of two suspected fraudsters who were residing in the home of Nigerian singer Skales.

This comes shortly after Skales called out the operatives, accusing them of raiding his home at midnight and oppressing him in front of his wife and his six-month-old baby.

The EFCC had denied these allegations, stating that officials of the anti-graft agency do not operate in such a manner. EFCC spokesman, Dele Oyewale, insisted that the incident might be a mere allegation, as the invaders could be impersonators of the EFCC roaming around.

However, in a subsequent statement on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, the EFCC shared images of two suspected fraudsters on social media, with claims that they were arrested in Skales’ residence and considered him their mentor.

According to the anti-graft agency, the duo were nabbed in Skales’ Lekki residence and accused of engaging in duping unsuspecting persons in a romance scam.

The EFCC’s statement reads, 

“The suspects: Udemba Chukwuemeka (a.k.a Jody) and Jamal Jamiu Onasola (a.k.a. Jamal) were arrested at the residence of a musician: John Njeng Njeng (a.k.a Skales).”

“The two suspects, suspected of being involved in a dating scam, described Njeng as their “mentor”. While Chukwuemeka has been in Njeng’s residence for two years, Onasola has only stayed there for few months.

“They will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.”
