Before he met his waterloo some months ago, 30-year-old Hope Olusegun Aroke lived in the elite 1004 Housing Estate, Victoria Island, Lagos. Aroke, an undergraduate in a Malaysian university, had the world at his beck and call, as he could afford just about anything that meant class. For him, provision was probably just another successful scam away. And the race to maintain the social status that fraud had allegedly earned him could never end. In his garage was a fleet of posh cars and SUVs, all of Mercedes-Benz brand. Though a tenant, he successfully outshone the status of his co-residents. To many, the young man had done well for himself by a dint of hard work. In some sense, Aroke was working hard, but as a suspected serial scammer. His busy neighbours barely noticed his unusual schedule, but many were irked by his exceptional flamboyant lifestyle. Most times, when neighbours were out to work, Aroke stayed indoor in company with other young men, who were later discovered to be his fraud cell suspects.

These young men included his apprentices and internet scam partners. The operation that marred Aroke’s merry-making living would have shot up his net worth by several notches. Going by the revelation of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, he had successfully carried out the scam operations worth N55m on unsuspecting members of the public. He, however, became unfortunate while trying to conceal the nature of the proceeds by converting it to foreign currency in partnership with Ibrahim Tafida, a Bureau de Change operator. He was eventually nabbed by the team of the EFCC in Lagos. Last year, 25-year-old Sunkanmi Odewale, a 200-level undergraduate of Mechanical Engineering, Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State, a suspected fraudster, breezed into an automart and bought a Toyota Venza for N4m. Before, he was picked up in Ibadan, Oyo State, three months ago, he was alleged to be notorious for regularly swindling unsuspecting members of the public via the internet. His N4m Toyota Venza was the latest of his collections of luxury toys allegedly acquired from the proceeds of cyber crimes. He, however, forfeited it and other valuables worth millions, which were seized during the arrest.

The EFCC said he was currently facing prosecution. Other kingpins in cyber crime in Ibadan, Oyo State, according to EFCC, are 300 level students, Olowofola Tolu and Ekundayo Damilola, both of Lead City University, Ibadan. They are studying Economics and Computer Sciences respectively. They were alleged to be the brains behind successful cyber crimes in the state before they were arrested around Oluyole Estate extension in Ibadan. Both of them made good money from the business such that they paraded exotic cars among other things. Other boys believed to hold the area in terms of cyber crimes operations and training of intending members according to EFCC are Adelabu Kolawole, HND II student of Purchasing and Supply Department, Ibadan Polytechnic and Bankole Fisayo, Ordinary Diploma II student of Marketing Department, Osun State Polytechnic, Iree. Their valuables running into tens of millions of naira were seized by the EFCC, which said that they were all being prosecuted. Investigation revealed that more young people particularly undergraduates, now have the wherewithal to afford luxury items such as exotic cars, live in hotels for weeks, buy classy homes and throw lavish parties where expensive brands of wines and spirits are offered. They also travel to choice countries of the world and frolic with the hottest girls in town. They live in such affluence that will make an average worker with decades of meritorious service cringe. WE learnt that usually, they are undergraduates, predominantly young men enrolled to study different courses in both Nigerian and foreign tertiary institutions.

These undergraduate scammers and internet fraudsters are the current toast of their various campuses. Their friends, course mates and distant admirers, especially the ladies, all wish to grab a portion of their well-advertised wealth. Using the internet and other information and communication, these savvy youths, often successfully dupe greedy people. Laptops, mobile telephones, flash drives, external hard drives, printers and so on, are their work implements. Since they usually don’t operate from an identifiable office or from fixed residential addresses, they cart away many people’s financial fortunes forever without pointing a gun or being physically present. They operate most times through a network of connections across country borders, making it possible for a person to fall victim at any location. Investigation revealed that the colony of internet fraudsters, also known as Yahoo Yahoo, is growing to match the dynamism in information and communication technology. This also poses greater challenge to crime detecting agencies in Nigeria such as the EFCC. During some sting operations based on internet-prompted information, the EFCC recently arrested another five suspected fraudsters in Enugu State. They are: 27-year-old Uche Nwakor; 30-year-old Oluchukwu Ejikeme; 28-year-old Ifeanyi Ejikeme; 30-year-old Nnamani Ikechukwu; and Ibe Kodili.

They were arrested at their expensive houses at No 26 and 42, Chimaobi Uba Street, GRA, Enugu. The team is said to be “serial scammers,” having defrauded several victims. Items seized from them where they were perfecting how to get the next victim are: eight exotic cars, nine laptops, 21 mobile phones, internet routers, drivers’ licenses and international passports. Two months ago, the game was over for notorious internet fraudster, Wale Olaide, who specialised in defrauding members of the public through bank credit alerts. Popularly called Wale Dollar in his clique, he had great tentacles as his business transversed the shores of Nigeria. Although he had successfully executed bigger deals, which had earned him a comfortable life, he came crashing over a N5m deal involving two brothers Abdulhamid Abubakar, based in Nigeria and Hashim Abubakar based in Togo.

They are both into BDC business. Under the pretext that he wanted to do genuine business with them, he contacted the Togo-based operator, asking for his Nigerian bank account number, which he authorised his brother to give him. Olaide was supposed to pay in N5m to purchase the CFA Francs equivalent. But when he got the account details, rather than send the money as agreed, he sent a false credit alert notifying the BDC operators that his account had credited at the Seme border branch and so he released the equivalent to him. He was shocked to find out the next day that his bankers couldn’t trace such payments made into his account. The EFCC said it took investigative initiative to arrest Olaide, who it described as “a member of the deadly syndicate involved in duping unsuspecting members of the public.” It described fraudulent credit banking notification as a new trend in criminality by fraudsters and warned the public to be careful. The EFCC Ag. Head, Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, told Saturday PUNCH that it was not in the character of fraudsters to buy lands or build houses.

He said, “They seldom even buy houses or have permanent addresses because of the nature of their activities. They often spend money on exotic cars, throw parties and generally squander the money on things that are not fixed. All the people arrested for such crimes are usually made to face the law.” Uwujaren said there were signs that could put one on the guard. “If for instance somebody you have never met in person begins to pester you about your personal banking details online, chances are that the person may be a potential scammer. “Also when a total stranger begins to make business proposal that look too good to be true, you better watch it,” he said. He said a good number of scammers had been prosecuted and jailed; others had to flee the country to neighbouring countries.

He however said that there was still more work to be done. He said EFCC’s conviction profile was dominated by internet and advance fee fraud cases, adding that the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offenses Act 2006 prescribed a minimum of seven and maximum of 20 years jail term for advance fee fraud offenses. He admitted that scammers were mainly youngsters but not limited to any social strata and educational backgrounds. An inside source, who understands the mode of operation of internet fraudsters told our correspondent that the commission depended mainly on raids until it had a breakthrough in technology. The EFCC source, who preferred to remain anonymous, said the technology called Eagle Claw, was designed by a young Nigerian, who landed in the EFCC net after he was deported from India some years ago for successfully hacking the country’s military website.

He said the commission employed his services to help it understand the workings of internet fraudsters and he eventually designed a technology with some programmed language that sniffs and detects mails suspected to be from fraudsters. “Once our technology sniffs those codes, the mail is hijacked and we start investigation from there. “Under the former administration, EFCC was able to arrest 2,000 internet scammers using Eagle Claw; it runs like a laboratory. “There was a case when our team of investigators acted like a ‘white man’ (prospective victim) and we kept communicating with the fraudster until we fixed the Abuja Sheraton Hotel as meeting point and he simply walked into a net. “There are other technologies that we are using to combat cyber crimes as they evolve.” On their mode of operation and recruitment procedures, the source said they operate in cells (splinter groups) and each cell has a leader, who trains the new entrants.

He said the apprentices usually lived with their leaders in big mansions, where they served them, while undergoing the rudiments of the game. He said gone were the days when fraudsters used the cyber café, because of the fear of being raided, adding that they now operate from homes, which makes it difficult to arrest them, except by intelligence report. He added that the advent of private use of the internet through modems and other ISP channels had made it difficult to trace scammers without an up to date technology.

 He said that members of the public could identify a fraudster by some traits, even though they operate by nick names. “If you see young people living in questionable affluence today and appear broke tomorrow. “If he offers to sell his N5m car to you at N1.5m and the next week he has a bigger car, suspect him. Most times when they don’t have a victim to milk, they run out of cash and quickly sell their valuables to continue to live big. “If the same young man stays at home when people should be at work, hosting several girls in his apartment, watch him. “If he usually moves with some other group of young men, who most likely stay the night in his apartment and having so many ICT gadgets, watch him.” He however said that what is important is for members of the public to be careful and not to be given to greed, as some well- educated people and even top government officials had at some time, fallen prey to them. Asked if it is true that Yahoo plus brand (charm-backed) assisted the fraudsters in their criminal activities, he said, “I don’t believe that they charm people, I think they are just internet smart people who work with technology to people’s disadvantage.

TRAGIC: Secondary School Principal Found Dead In A Gutter

The principal of Ijokodo Junior Secondary School 1, Ibadan, Oyo State Mr Segun Dare, was on Wednesday, found dead along the street to his home at Citaga area, Sango-Eleyele road, face down in a gutter, with his mobile handset in his pocket and a polythene bag containing soup ingredients.
It was gathered that the deceased left his home in the afternoon of Tuesday, September 3, to go to a first generation bank along Sango-Eleyele road but could not do what he intended doing there as he got there late and he reportedly called his wife and told her that he did not achieve his objective, informing her that he was returning home immediately.
When he failed to turn up at home as he promised, his wife called his number and a strange voice picked up the call telling her to get off the line as her husband was busy and would call her later.
Not too long after, the voice called to inform her that she could call her husband if she wished but her attempts at speaking with the deceased failed as her calls went unanswered.
The wife was said to have raised a search party which went round without locating the principal until late into Tuesday night.
The search party continued the following morning when his body was discovered.
Since the discovery of the principal’s body, there had been speculations that he was probably killed by some hoodlums who had been going to the school compound to smoke Indian hemp.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo State, Olabisi Okuwobi-Ilobanafor said that it’s a case of sudden and unnatural death. “The body of the man was  found on Monday morning face down. It was taken to the morgue. We are waiting for autopsy to determine what actually killed him. It is too early to jump into a conclusion,” she said.

ASUU Strike: Female Students In Kaduna Forced Into Prostitution

 ASUU Strike: Female Students In Kaduna Forced Into Prostitution
While it can be agreed that the seemingly unending Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike is beginning to take a toll on students, the fact that female students in Kaduna are now resorting to prostitution is becoming a source of worry.
Reports have revealed that the number of sex workers in the state has shot up since the strike action.
The sex workers are mostly seen along Rabah road, Muhammadu Buhari way, Constitution road and Independent road, all in Kaduna metropolis while others have moved into the Obalande area located around Cameroon road where they rent rooms in small hotels for their business.
Other student sex workers were also seen around Gwari avenue road, Barnawa and other hotels in the state capital where they meet their patrons.
According to reports, one of the sex workers revealed that she was in the business to enable her meet her needs till the strike is called off.
Another lady who claimed to be a final year student of one of the federal universities hailed ASUU for the strike.
According to her, “The strike, though will delay my graduation, is helping me gather funds for my upkeep when the strike is finally suspended.”
Another female undergraduate said, “we contribute money to pay for hotel rooms and we sometimes hire the rooms for several weeks to do business.
“Most of us do not have anybody that will take care of us and we even have our younger ones to cater for. So we have to do this business anytime we are on strike or holiday to survive.”
Asked when she intends to stop the business, she said, “anytime the strike is suspended, I will go back to school. But, I hope to stop this business as soon as I get a job after graduation.”

Two Street Kids Gang-Rape Prostitute, Shove Knife In Her Private Part

Two Street Kids Gang-Rape Prostitute, Shove Knife In Her Private Part
In a shocking occurrence in Zimbabwe, two young boys have been arrested for allegedly raping and physically assaulting a prostitute.
Reports have it that the young boys, named Chengetai Tauzeni and Samuel Parirenyatwa dragged the 21-year-old prostitute to a secluded place at Centenary Park and undressed her before shoving a knife into her 'money making' parts. The then went on to sexually assault her after which they left with her cellphone and some money.
According to court reports, on the 25th of August at around 9:30pm, Tauzeni's friend, Desmond Ndimunyane, who is co-accused in the two cases, met the 21-year-old prostitute (name withheld), at Waverly Night Club, in the city centre.
The court heard that the complainant is a sex worker and the accused persons decided to hire her services for an agreed fee. Ndimunyane called Tauzeni and the two hired a taxi which ferried them to Eveline Girls High School where they dropped off.
It was further revealed that both boys force-marched the young girl to a bush at Centenary Park where they stripped her naked and began to assault her.

The court further heard that the street kids went on to tie the girl with a string before they forced her to stand up. Ndimunyane allegedly forced her to bend down and had unprotected sex with her while his partner in crime was watching.

The woman later managed to untie herself and ran for dear life. A report was made to the police who managed to locate the suspects before they recovered property worth US$60. The knife that was dipped into the prostitute's private parts was also recovered and will be produced in court as exhibit.

The accused street kids were remanded in custody to 11 September.

PHOTO: Kim Kardashian Is Ready To Go Nude Again

Former Playboy Magazine model, Kim Kardashian says she is ready for another 'nude' photo shoot.
The reality star, who just gave birth to her baby daughter in June, expressed her desire to do another photoshoot for the adult men's magazine. She made the revelation in scenes filmed for the upcoming series of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ – and has admitted she would like to take part in another risque photo shoot.

SHOCKING: Undergraduate Commits Suicide Over Inability To Have Sex With His Girlfriend

A 32-year-old undergraduate, Emeke is said to have committed suicide in Igbiegwa Quarters, Ute-Erumu, Ika North East local government Area, Delta State because his manhood was not working well.
It was learnt that Emeke who was an undergraduate of the Delta State University's futile effort to make love to his girlfriend but his manhood kept failing led him to commit suicide by jumping into a well inside his family compound.
Apparently in a bid to find a lasting solution to his predicament, it was gathered that he visited several churches, where he was asked to embark on 31 days fasting and prayers to restore his manhood, but all to no avail.
Emeke who had been receiving several complaints from his girlfriend about his inability to satisfy her promised to make it up to her.
In an attempt to try out the outcome of the fast, they checked into a guest house on Monday, but it was still the same as his manhood disappointed him again.
According to a family source, who gave his name as Emilia said on that fateful Monday, after the incident at the guest house, Emekus, as he’s fondly called sold his clothes and shoes after which he left a suicide note on his bed.
Emilia described the circumstances surrounding the act as rather mysterious.
The deceased was said to have been buried after his family paid the fine fixed by elders of the community, who described Emeke’s action as an abomination.

President Jonathan is too weak, and Incapable as a leader – Asari Dokubo

The President of the defunct Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, Alhaji Mujahedeen Asari- Dokubo, once again took a swipe at President Goodluck Jonathan, stating that the Nigerian leader is a disappointment to the Ijaw ethnic nationality.

Asari-Dokubo said Jonathan is weak and unassertive as a leader.

The ex-militant commander, who was reacting to the latest crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which has led to the factionalisation of the ruling party, lamented that Jonathan could not take bold and courageous steps to tame the dissidents.

Asari-Dokubo, who spoke in a telephone interview with our correspondent, regretted that Jonathan could not act like a typical Ijaw man, who is famous for boldness and exceptional courage.

He asked the President to be guided by an Ijaw famous saying, “Ama Doko Doko Biokpo,” which he interpreted to mean “small, small towns but they are very courageous and keep hope alive.”

Asari-Dokubo said he was unimpressed by “what he called poor response” to the crisis rocking the PDP by the Presidency and advised Jonathan to emulate former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who confronted and dealt with the dissidents in the party during his tenure.

He recalled how Obasanjo allegedly wielded power to quench the insurgency led by a former Delta State Governor, Chief James Ibori, within the PDP, against his re-election in 2003.

To this end, he asked Jonathan to stop further peace talks and negotiation with the dissident governors and their collaborators, including Obasanjo and former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar.

He said Jonathan only needed to sit up and demonstrate uncommon courage to subdue his political enemies, adding that the crisis was orchestrated to frustrate his second term ambition.

Asari-Dokubo decried the recent statement credited to Abubakar Gumi that the killings in the North would stop as soon as Jonathan renounced his second term bid, adding that the cleric and his co-travellers were cashing in on the weakness of the President.

He nonetheless expressed the conviction that the plot against Jonathan would fail.

He said: “Jonathan is disgracing the Ijaw people and people of the South-South by negotiating with these dissidents. I am terribly annoyed by the way he is handling this issue, he is a disgrace. If he cannot withstand them he should tell us because there is no basis for negotiation.

“This is the time for Jonathan to act like an Ijaw man and he should stop disgracing us.

“Jonathan should hit them and he should tell us if he cannot hit them so that we can help him to hit them mercilessly. I have the potential to hit them hard. It is on record that I once held Nigeria hostage and Nigeria could not produce oil for 48 hours and my activities forced the prices of crude oil globally to rise by $30 one day. It was unprecedented and I can repeat it.

“The plot against Jonathan will surely fail but the President should be decisive with these people once and for all. Jonathan should assert himself as President and put these people where they should be. Obasanjo, who is leading these people did two terms and he plotted a third term.

“There should be no negotiation with dissidents. It should be total war, no retreat, no surrender and let us see who will run first. There is time for peace and there is time for war. This is the time to go into war.

“Jonathan should know that this is the time for war and if he cannot sustain the war, we will help him to sustain it. How many governors attempted to frustrate Obasanjo? Ibori and others were united behind Atiku Abubakar to frustrate Obasanjo and they failed because Obasanjo was strong, assertive, decisive and courageous.

“Jonathan should be strong to deal with them but whether he is strong or not, we are ready to support and stand by him. It is not a one-man battle but a total war and they must be totally vanquished.”

Besides, Asari-Dokubo asked Jonathan to hand over the Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, to the ex-fighters in the Niger Delta for a decisive action.

On Amaechi, he said, “Let the security men step aside and let us see how Amaechi can come to Rivers State. Amaechi should not be protected because he has betrayed the collective interest of the Niger Delta.

“Jonathan should be decisive and look at the other way and allow us to stand on the streets for 24 hours and we will see whether this madness by Amaechi will not end.”

Meet The Lady That Wants To Be President Jonathan's 2nd Wife

Kenyan celeb and Big Brother Africa 'The Chase Contestant Alhuda Njoroje ‘Huddah Monroe has expressed her desire to be  President Goodluck Jonathan's wife.
She revealed she had a crush on Nigerian president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan after she tweeted "So when is Jonathan landing? I’ve always had a crush on him…LOL! Nigera, prepare for a step mom".
The president is expected to visit Kenya this weekend.
The 22-year-old model is a well known face in Kenya’s party/social scene and she reportedly plans on shooting her own reality TV show soon.
One can only wonder what the first lady, Patience Jonathan would think of this when she finds out?

PHOTO: Wayne Rooney Reveals Head Injury

England forward Wayne Rooney has posted a picture online of the head injury that has ruled him out of the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
photo England forward Wayne Rooney has posted a picture online of the head injury that has ruled him out of the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
Rooney fumed after supporters questioned his withdrawal from Roy Hodgson's squad at the start of the week.
The 27-year-old missed Manchester United's 1-0 defeat at Liverpool on Sunday after manager David Moyes revealed he suffered a severe gash on his head following an accidental collision with team-mate Phil Jones in training.
Moyes also stated his belief that Rooney would not be recovered in time to join up with his England colleagues ahead of the qualifying double-header against Moldova and Ukraine.
Rooney posted a picture of his injury on his official Facebook page on Wednesday evening with a comment defending his decision to withdraw from the crucial fixtures.
"Some people seem to be questioning my commitment to the England squad and the fact I had to pull out of the two games," he wrote.
"There's nothing I would like more than to be helping the lads in the qualifiers. I'm sure people will see from these images the reason why I won't be able to play."
England team-mate Theo Walcott had yesterday described the wound as "like something out of a horror film".
England go into the clashes with Moldova and Ukraine currently two points behind group-leaders Montenegro but with a game in hand.
Rooney, the subject of bids from Chelsea in the transfer window, remained a United player when the window closed.
But the injury means Rooney, who has scored 36 goals in 84 England caps, will be missing for up to a month with the onus on goals in the qualifiers falling on the likes of team-mate Danny Welbeck and Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge.

Michael Essien And Darren Fletcher, Out of Champions League Squads

The Chelsea and Manchester United veterans are the highest-profile names to fail to make the cut as the Premier League's top teams finalise their group-stage rosters
The Ghanaian had been reunited with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea after spending last season on loan at Real Madrid but has been an unused substitute in three of the Blues' first four matches this term and now has missed out on the opening phase of continental play.

Fletcher, meanwhile, has made only 13 appearances for Manchester United since his 2011 diagnosis with ulcerative colitis and looks set to spend more time away from the pitch.

The 29-year-old was hoped to be nearing a return to action but his lack of inclusion in David Moyes's group-stage squad indicates the Scot may not be ready to play until 2014.

Previously in August, Fletcher had stated that he had been practicing self-imposed exile from the Red Devils' training ground in Carrington as he waited for his surgeon to clear him to return to training.

Youngster Adnan Januzaj, who caught the eye in United's tour of Asia this summer, is also left out of the Champions League squad, while new faces Marouane Fellaini and Wilfried Zaha have made the cut.

Portugal starlet Bruma is honoured to be compared with the Seleccao skipper and revealed his pride to play with Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba at Galatasaray
The 18-year-old, who completed a move to Turkey during the closing stages of the transfer window, says he is eager to emulate the Portugal captain's achievements in future having emerged through the same youth system at Sporting.

"I think Cristiano Ronaldo is not of this world," he was quoted as saying by A Bola. "He's a completely different player. The comparisons made between us make me happy, I hope to be like him one day."

Bruma joined Galatasaray for €10 million on a five-year deal shortly before the transfer deadline, and the winger revealed he is relishing the prospect of learning from established stars Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba.

"Sneijder and Drogba are very important players," he added. "I will have the opportunity to learn from them and be successful."

Bruma was one of the stars of the summer's Under-20 World Cup, where his Portugal side reached the round of 16 before losing to Ghana.

28,000 Candidates Jostle For Varsity’s 3,500 Admission Spaces

Over 28,000 candidates on Wednesday began sitting for the post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination for only 3,500 admission spaces into the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Last year over 22,000 candidates sat for the post-UTME examinations of the university.
The over 28,000 candidates for this year’s post-UTME have been divided into three batches by the university for the purpose of the examination whose conduct would last for three days.
The increase in the rate of human and vehicular movements in the area due to the large number of candidates sitting for the post-UTME exercise however caused traffic snarl on all roads leading to the FUNAAB campus at Alabata.
FUNAAB Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olusola Oyewole, while monitoring the exercise, told newsmen that the increase in the number of candidates seeking admission into the university could be attributed to the confidence parents and candidates had in the institution.
Oyewole, who is also the president of the Association of African Universities, added that the stable academic calendar of FUNAAB could also be the major attraction to parents and admission seekers.
He said, “This year, we  have 28,100 candidates sitting for this post-UTME examination. Really, it’s a reflection of the confidence of the parents and the candidates in the quality of education on offer in FUNAAB.
“It would interest you to know that in FUNAAB today, although ASUU is on strike, we have already concluded our second semester examination before the lecturers started their strike. We are a university committed to bringing out the leadership quality of our students. It’s a school of discipline, and a school that is interested in producing future leaders for this country.”
The VC added that the number of applicants had continued to rise because FUNAAB had always complied with the admission guidelines of the Joint Admission Matriculation Board.
Oyewole noted that unlike other universities, FUNAAB had exercised restraint regarding the usual practice whereby some universities  usually increased the admission cut-off mark against JAMB’s dictate.
