Two Nigerian suspects have been arrested for alledgedly defrauding a Germany company of ‎€14.7 million in a COVID-19-related scale, Nigerian police said on Sunday.

50-year-old Babatunde Adesanya and Akinpelu Hassan Abass, who is 41years old, were accused of cloning the corporate website of ILBN Holdings BV, Holland, to defraud one Freiherr Fredrick Von Hahn, a representative of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia.

“Discrete investigations by INTERPOL Nigeria revealed that the suspects and their Holland-based cohorts, one Eduardus Boomstra and Geradius Maulder specialised in identity theft, cyber-stalking, cloning of corporate websites amongst other cyber mischiefs to defraud unsuspecting members of the public across the world,” Nigerian police said in a statement.
