7 suspected ATM card hackers arrested in Lagos

.....I hack into Nigerian banks with ease

The police in Lagos State have arrested seven suspected hackers of ATM cards.
One of the suspects, 23-year-old Olalekan Ayoola, whose arrest led to the apprehension of others, said it was easy for him to hack into any bank in Nigeria.

Ayoola, who was paraded yesterday, said he could hack into any bank account using a software he installed in his system.
The suspect disclosed that he had withdrawn millions of naira from different accounts using the software.

The six others arrested based on the confessional statement of Ayoola, according to the police include, Sodiq Olalere; Ayobami Adebayo, 21; Muftau Ibrahim, 25; Ogundiran Adeniyi, 24; Emmanuel Chukwu, 25 and Dare Oyetola, 32.

Ayoola said: “I can hack into any bank account with ease using stolen ATM cards. A friend of mine called Lanre taught me how to use the software. I feed the security number on the ATM into my system and with the aid of the software I will know the amount of money the person has in his or her account.”

Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, who paraded the suspects at the command headquarters on Monday, said at about 12:30am October, 7, he received information from a credible source that some armed robbers were sighted making unauthorized withdrawal at Stanbic Bank at Alaba branch, using stolen ATM cards from unsuspecting members of the public.

Edgal said two of the robbers were arrested and others escaped. He said during interrogation, the suspects confessed to belonging to a group of armed robbers popularly called ‘Blue Water Boys’ that had been terrorizing residents of Ojo, Agric, Okomaiko, Ajangbadi, Ijanikin, Iba and environs.

The CP said the suspects further confessed to have robbed the owner of a restaurant at Araromi Street, Iba and in the process dispossessed the victim of some ATM cards and phones.

Items recovered from them included two ATM cards, one black Nokia Torchlight phone, one Infinix Hot 4 phone, three laptops, one iPhone 7 plus, four cut-to-size single barrel locally made guns, 13 unexpended live cartridges, he said, adding that the suspects would be charged to court after investigation.
