OPERATIVES of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Lagos Zonal Office, on Monday announced that they have arrested one Babatunde Oyerinde Abidoun, a.k.a. Kashy, for his alleged involvement in cyber crimes.

In a statement signed by Dele Oyewale, Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Abiodun, who is the owner of CashNation Ent. Ltd., a music record label, was arrested recently at his residence in Lekki Conservative Estate, Lagos.

His arrest followed intelligence gathered overtime about his suspicious lifestyle.

According to the EFCC, Abiodun, who shuttles between Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), allegedly used the proceeds of his fraudulent activities to fund his lavish lifestyle.

Investigations linked his fraudulent activities to his domestic staff, Thomas Aliu Akwu, who confessed to having different accounts domiciled in UBA, Ecobank, GTB, Zenith Bank and FCMB and also receiving money for his boss through the accounts.

Items recovered from the suspect at the point of arrest include a white 2013 Bentley Continental and Mercedes Benz GLK 350.

The suspect will soon be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded, the statement said.
