The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said it operatives has arrested one Amos Olugbenga Olaniyan, for allegedly defrauding people of more than N128 million, in a fraudulent investment scheme.

A statement issued by Mr. Wilson  Uwujaren, the Agency’s spokesman, said Olaniyan was nabbed following series of complaints.

In th statement, the petitioners have alleged that Olaniyan, through his company, DHIL Nigeria Limited, popularly known as Crime Alert Security Network Investment, offered a monthly 30% returns on investment.

The agency said the suspect will be charged to court at the completion of investigations.
