Facebook Hacker Nabbed In Rivers State After Successfully Duping 5 Influential Nigerians (Photo)

Nemesis has caught up with a 36 year old cosmetic seller,
Daniel Obasi, who also is a serial facebook account hacker after he posed as
the Deputy governor of two states in the South West. Before the long hands of
the law caught up with him, five influential Nigerians had fallen prey to his
cock and bull stories and were handsomely duped.
Vanguard gathered that Obasi who hails from Imo State and
resides in Port Harcourt, River State hacked into the Facebook accounts of the
Ondo and Lagos state deputy governors Alhaji Lasisi Oluboyo and Alhaja Oluranti
Idiat Adebule respectively and made good money from their unsuspecting friends
and acquaintances.
The suspect who was paraded alongside other criminals at the
state police headquarters confirmed to Vanguard during an interview that he
specialises in hacking to the face book account of prominent Nigerians in a bid
to dupe their unsuspecting friends.

Obasi said frustration drove him into the illicit business
after his cosmetics business nosedived due to paucity of funds and in a bid to
survive he ventured into the Internet business. According to him, he succeeded
in hacking into the account of the two deputy governors and was working on another
deputy governor’s facebook account when detectives traced him to his residence
in River state where he was arrested and subsequently detained.
Speaking on his arrest, Obasi who did not deny the crime
said frustration forced him into a life of cyber crime. He said he resorted to
using the Facebook accounts of the notable personalities because he was sure
his victims will easily fall for his tricks.
“I am Daniel from Imo State but live in Port Harcourt. I
opened a separate account of Deputy Governors and I used it to chat with people
on the net. I did not hack into their accounts; I only opened new accounts on
their behalf.   I use it to communicate
with people. I have never hacked into their accounts.
“I was doing cosmetic business before. But when my money was
stolen inside my shop and there was no money to re-stock my shop, I have no
choice than to look for a way to survive that was why I went into cyber crime.
I have not been long in this business. I have only clone accounts of Ondo and
Lagos States Deputy Governors and they have blocked the accounts now,” he
But Police sources said Obasi did not only clone accounts
but would hack into the accounts of the deputy governors using a particular
software. The police said large sums of money were paid into his bank accounts.
Vanguard gathered from Police detectives that Obasi has been using the cloned
accounts to chat with friends, siblings and political associates of the Deputy
Governors telling them of contracts to be given out by their state governments.
“According to him, he would usually ask the unsuspecting
friends of his victim to pay money into a specific account to help them
facilitate contracts in the offices of the two Deputy governors. Obasi said
that he was arrested by detectives from the state command, who pretended to be
interested in a contract to be awarded from the office of the deputy governor.

“The detectives presented themselves as representatives of a
tailors’ union and they said they are interested in a contract that would soon
be awarded by the office of the Deputy governor of Ondo state. “ They however
insisted that they want to pay directly into my account to help facilitate the
contract. I did not know that they are police detectives that was how I was
arrested “
