The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has commenced probe of a suspected fraudster, Ishaq Abubakar.
He was nabbed for concealing 2,886 Automated Teller Machine(ATM) cards and four Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards in noodles.
Abubakar was handed over to the EFCC by the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) on Thursday.
He was arrested Customs officers at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on his way to Dubai.
Deputy Comptroller, Enforcement, Abudulmumuni Bako, revealed how the suspect was nabbed
Represented by Customs Area Comptroller, A. Ma’aji, Bako said the suspect, who claimed to have come from Kano to travel to Dubai aboard the Emirate Evacuation flight, was seen with someone assigned to facilitate his movement through the airport checks.
“This raised the suspicion of the officers who insisted he should be physically and thoroughly checked after the scan machine had revealed he was carrying parks of noodles”, he said.
