EFCC Arrests Two Suspected Internet Fraudsters At Popular Artiste, Skales' Residence

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission said they arrested two suspected internet fraudsters at the residence of musician, John Njeng Njeng popularly known as Skales.

The commission made this known in a statement shared on their X (formerly Twitter) on Tuesday.

The statement said, “Operatives of the Lagos Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, arrested two suspected internet fraudsters at House F10, Victoria Crest 4, Lekki, Lagos. 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 a few months. 

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

Singer John Njeng-Ngeng, popularly known as Skales, on Tuesday cried out over an alleged invasion of his home by EFCC officials.

In an exclusive chat, the EFCC spokesman, Dele Oyewale, stated that such claims were unfounded, adding that officials of the anti-graft agency do not operate in such a manner.
