Nine officials of Kirikiri Maximum Prison in Lagos have been suspended by the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Services board over a $1 million fraud.

The fraud was masterminded by Olusegun Aroke, an inmate of the maximum prison, according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The suspended officials were indicted in the scam, according to a statement released by the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS), on Wednesday, November 27, The Cable reports.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported the EFCC’s arrest of Emmanuel Oluwaniyi, the controller of Kirikiri maximum prison.

Hemeson Edwin, head of the medical facility in the prison, was also arrested. Their arrest was also in connection with the $1 million fraud perpetrated by Aroke.

Recall that Aroke was one of two Malaysia-based Nigerian undergraduate fraudsters arrested by the EFCC in 2012 at the 1004 Housing estate, Victoria Island, Lagos following a tip-off.

He had claimed to be a student of Computer Science at the Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University, Malaysia but the commission’s investigation fingered him as the arrowhead of an intricate web of internet fraud scheme that traverses two continents.
