NDLEA arrests dual identity man with 107 ATM cards

Men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) recently arrested in Lagos, a man with dual identity who was in position of 107 Automated Teller Machine (ATM) cards belonging to Citi Bank, reports ITRealms.

The Lagos Airport commander, NDLEA, Mr. Hamza Umar, told ITRealms that the suspect was arrested after the discovery by his men during the outward screening of Turkish Airline passengers to Istanbul, Turkey, at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos.

The suspect, 36, he said, goes with two international passports bearing his photographs but with different names.

“He had a Nigerian passport with the name Funsho Oladimeji Babatunde and a Turkish passport with the name Kosar Kursat both bearing his photographs. The cards found in his luggage are 68 Citi Interswitch Master Cards and 39 Citi Interswitch Visa cards,” Hamza revealed.

The suspect, he said, had confessed to being a native of Iwo town in Kwara State, resides in Surulere, Lagos and is an Ordinary National Diploma (OND) graduate on Economics, from the Kwara State Polytechnic, allegedly told his interrogators he was taking the cards to a friend in Turkey.
“My friend in Turkey called me that I should help in sending the cards to him in Istanbul, Turkey.

“When I collected the cards in Lagos, I kept them in my bag but during search, the officer saw the cards and took me for interrogation. I am an OND graduate of Economics at the Kwara State Polytechnic”, he explained.

Reacting, the Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA, Ahmadu Giade, directed the transfer of the suspect to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for further investigation as the offence was an indication of fraudulent activities.
