The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos office, on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, seized a total of 29 exotic cars during a raid on the office of a Lagos-based car dealer, Astrax Auto Shop.



The raid followed intelligence report received by the Commission on the activities of the operators of the auto shop, who are said to be a syndicate of organized Internet fraudsters.



Investigation revealed that the syndicate, which specializes in Business Emails Compromise, BEC, in the United States of America, USA, usually moves proceeds of its alleged illicit business to a nominated bank account owned by their mules in the U.S.



The syndicate members allegedly launder the proceeds through money order, which they use to purchase cars in American auctions and ship same to Nigeria for sale.

The EFCC had earlier arrested one of the syndicate members, Olusegun Micheal Adeyemi.



In his statement to the EFCC, Adeyemi confirmed one Tayo Onilogbo Yusuf as the Managing Director of Astrax Autos and Automobile.



The cars recovered from the syndicate include: four Toyota Corolla; seven Toyota Camry; two Toyota Highlander; two Toyota Venza; two Range Rover; one Ford SUV; three Mercedes Benz; one Toyota 4runner; one Toyota Sienna; four Honda Accord; one Toyota Sequoia and one Kia car.

When bloggers say "exotic cars" I wonder if there is truly indigenous car makers in Nigeria.

Just a means of fund raising. If the owner complains, they'll say he didn't pay the correct custom duties and bla bla

To all social media influencers and bloggers of backwardness, continue getting paid to confuse the nation, you all are on a fruitless mission, this country will NEVER go back to a state of deceptive and rotten leadership,
Well meaning Nigerians like me that are not politically motivated but rising to a clarion call for patriotism will exercise our voting right come 2019, we are very aware ATIKU is never an option for us.
Thanks to this thread, I can finally express my thoughts on Atiku and NNPC privatisation.
And you? You are not paid abi?

These EFCC, behaves like cows. Is it the cars that committed the crime? Charge the person to court and if found guilty , he will do the time. Is the car evidence of the crime or what?

This is how they crumble businesses and destroy the economy in the name of investigation.

Have they investigated the 3.5 million spent on feeding el zakzaky ?
