EFCC arraigns Nigerian, Lebanese for alleged money laundering
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday arraigned the duo of Kayode Philip (alias Voice of the King) and Hamza Koudeih, a Lebanese, for allegedly engaging in cyber fraud and laundering the sums of $7.06 million, £1 million and €80,000.
Koudeih is said to be an associate of Internet celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha (alias Mompha), who was on Monday arraigned for alleged N32.9 billion fraud.
Philip and Koudeih, who are being tried on 25 counts before the Federal High Court in Lagos, were also accused of attempting to retain the sums of $6 million and £1 million in the Bank of China.
The EFCC through its counsel Abbas Mohammed said they also “knowingly engaged in computer phishing and spamming which resulted in acquiring sensitive information” from various emails.
