Posted on Updated on

A 23-year-old graduate of College of Education,
Ilaro, Ogun State, who has been on wanted list of
the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps
(NSCDC), for notoriety on hacking into websites of
government agencies and sale of fake recruitment
forms has been arrested.
The suspect, who simply gave his name as Adeniji
Lukman, from Osun State, was paraded in Abuja, on
Monday, before newsmen by the Commandant-
General of NSCDC, Dr Ade Abolurin.
Lukman confessed to have committed the cyber
crime of hacking into websites of government
agencies, including security agencies and selling of
fake recruitment forms to unsuspecting job seekers.
He told newsmen that he was an expert in website
design and had been using that advantage to
defraud many Nigerians.
Answering the question on why he chose cyber
crime, the suspect said, “I have a talent and I know how to design
websites.”
Dr Abolurin disclosed that the suspect had been
notorious for hacking into websites of government
agencies, including the NSCDC, States Security
Service (SSS), Joint Admissions and Matriculation
Board (JAMB), National Examination Council (NECO)
and Nigeria Customs Service.
The suspect was also alleged to have hacked into
the website of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS)
and was already having a rip-off from the current
recruitment exercise being conducted by into NIS.
He was also alleged to have hacked into the website
of JAMB and produce questions and answers likely
to feature in the examinations and sold them to the
public before the Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination (UTME) was held.“The suspect before us is an expert in website
design. He can hack into any system, most
especially government agencies’ system.He
develops portals through which he used to put some
adverts, advertising for recruitment for all these
agencies.
“He just graduated from College of Education, Ilaro,
in March and went on to computer training centre
where he learnt some of these things.
The crux of the matter is that when he hacked into
our system, there was so much outcrie in the
country. This got to my knowledge late last year,
and so we started trailing the suspect.
We thank God, on September 26, we got him. The 23 year old was arrested in Osun State,” he said.
