The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Lagos has recently arrested Babatunde Oyerinde Abiodun, a.k.a Kashy, for allegedly being involved in cybercrime.

Abiodun is the owner of CashNation Ent. Ltd., a music record label. He was arrested at his residence in Lekki Conservative Estate, Lagos. The EFCC had gathered intelligence regarding his suspicious lifestyle over sometime.

Abiodun regularly commutes between Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates, UAE, and uses his proceeds from fraudulent activities to fund his ostentatious lifestyle.

According to investigations, Abiodun's domestic staff member, Thomas Aliyu Akwu, confessed to having several bank accounts domiciled to several banks like UBA, ECOBANK, GTB, Zenith Bank and FCMB, and using those to receive money for his boss.

Some items recovered from them at the point of arrest are a white 2013 Bentley Continental and a Mercedes Benz GLK 350.

The suspect will soon be charged to court upon conclusion of ongoing investigations.

It is known that Nigeria has been noted for having a substantial record of criminal and cybercrime activities over time, even in the international community. Most people hope that the law enforcement agencies do a better job at stopping the issue.
