According to Ebelo, Festus ran a syndicate with other cybercriminals abroad to illegally gain access into the accounts of individuals and organisations to defraud them of their money.


He said illicit transactions made through Festus’ Nigerian bank accounts amounted to N223million, noting that the suspect serves as a conduit pipe through which proceeds of crime reach members of the syndicate.
