The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said in a statement yesterday that it has arrested a Nigerien, one Muhammadu Ibrahim, on allegations of Automated Teller Machine (ATM) racketeering.
According to spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, Ibrahim was arrested while on transit to China for carrying 130 ATM cards of two different Nigerian banks and a Chinese bank, concealed in a carton of instant noodles.
“The suspect was nabbed at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano.
“Upon being interviewed, he claimed to be a Nigerien, with passport No. 09PC71337, bearing Muhammadou Ibrahim.
“However, preliminary investigation revealed that Muhammadou is a businessman that deals in costume and jewelery at the Kasuwan Kofar Wambai Market in Kano.
“The suspect will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded,” Uwujaren said.
