Kunle Ajobiewe, Lagos– Reeling from the recent spate of arrest of Nigerians by the FBI for fraud related activities, the Presidency said on Sunday that it would work out a set of executive orders as well as work with the National Assembly to pass new laws in order to curb online fraud involving Nigerians.
Recently, over 77 Nigerians living in the United States of America had been indicted by the Federal Bureau for Investigation, FBI of the United States of America. These arrests were preceded by the arrest of Obiwanne Okeke, aka Invictus Obi for allegedly stealing 11 million dollars via fraud.
This was made known to Nigerians by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu. Shehu disclosed this while appearing on Politics Today, a live television programme.
Shehu described the situation as a double damage on every citizen of Nigeria but however stated that this did not mean that every Nigerian was a fraudster.
