    The EFCC claimed in a statement on Monday that Chidubem had assumed the identity of Christopher Rossi, a marine engineer who works on boats and pipelines in Singapore, “based on credible intelligence on the activities of a syndicate of internet fraudsters.” He was committing and scamming his victims through the use of fake phone numbers on Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp applications.

    The Commission further stated that following the conclusion of the investigations, he would face legal charges.

    Additionally, for an alleged N2 billion fraud, the EFCC detained one Chike Nosa Agada, an unregistered foreign exchange broker.

    On Wednesday, October 11, 2023, Agada, a 37-year-old native of Udi Local Government Area in Enugu State, was listed as wanted by the Commission for stealing N2 billion through conversion and collecting money under false pretenses.

    On Monday, October 16, 2023, he was apprehended by Commission agents during a sting operation at a home in the Bourdillion, Ikoyi neighborhood of Lagos, as a result of reliable information connecting him to the purported scam. “As soon as the investigations are finished, he will be charged in court,” the EFCC stated.

    He was found to have a mobile device after being arrested.
