Online Application: How A 23-Year-Old Job Racketeer In Osun Swindled Unemployed Of Millions



A 23-year-old graduate of the College of Education, Ila-Orogun, Osun State, Adeniji Lukman, who specialises in hacking into and redesigning the website of government agencies has been arrested by one of Nigeria’s security agencies. The accused person was paraded at the headquarters of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) by the Commandant of the Corps in Abuja recently.
 

The NSCDC Commandant, Dr. Ade Abolurin, who spoke while parading him said apart from recording successes in arrests and prosecution of over 823 persons involved in illegal bunkering and vandalism, Adeniji’s issue was a major breakthrough in the operations of the corps. Abolurin said the Corps tracked the young man from Osun State through an operation led by the Corps’ Head of Surveillance and Monitoring, Ayodele Solomon, who said the suspect operated three bank accounts in which he has over N3 million.
 

“The suspect is an expert in web design. He can hack into any system but he specialises in infiltrating government agencies web page. For instance, he has done that to the Immigration, Civil Defence, Customs, SSS, NECO, JAMB, among other systems. He said he is 23 year old.” “He develops portals through which he pastes some advertorials for job recruitment for all these agencies. He used the portals to defraud innocent job seekers. He just graduated from the College of Education, Ila-Orogun, in March this year. He went to a computer-training school where he learnt web designing.
 

“The crux of the matter is that when he hawked into our system and there was outcry within the country, it got to the knowledge of our Commandant General late last year, who ordered us to start trailing the suspect. We initially thought he was in Abuja here but we could not locate him because he was in Osun State. “When we got wind that he was in Osun, we got there but he ran away on getting wind of our motive. We sent some of our undercover agents to be on his trail until their efforts paid off on September 26 when we caught him. We have statistics of those who paid money into his account.
 

“From our investigations, he has close to N1 million in Skybank account he operated with the name – Sunday Olotu. We blocked that account in January this year. He also operated two other accounts in First Bank. One is his personal account with over N1 million while the other with also over N1 million, belongs to the syndicates. So, on the whole, he has over N3 million in the three accounts where he never disclosed his means of income to the banks.
 

“He penetrates JAMB offices and gets the question papers and answers, keys them into his system and releases to the candidates at a price. Immigration just opened its web page, he created a special website with his expert and versatility in computer and there is no portal he cannot create. We have to thank the banks for cooperating with us and essentially the telecommunication firms,” he explained.
 

Confirming the claims of NSCDS, Adeniji, who blamed his escapade on the devil, admitted charging N4,500 for the job forms and N10,000 for the job proper. He said he learnt the act from the months of training in a computer centre after graduation.
 

He confirmed that: “I am from Ayidade in Osun State. I have talent of designing web pages, and that started in 2011. I have worked alone but I cannot give you the accurate figure of how much I have made since I started. I need my statement of account to know the exact figure. I don’t have account with the Skybank. But I agree that all other things the Civil Defence said about me are true.”
