A statement yesterday in Abuja by EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, said the arrest was made possible by a worker, who cried out that the bank’s system was about to be hacked into.
“Investigations showed that a worker of the bank was contacted by one of the suspected fraudsters, who proposed a business arrangement to him on how to hack into the system of the bank.”
“In the arrangement, an electronic device called Keelog Key Grabber would be used to harvest passwords of some of the key operation workers of the bank.
“The grabber was meant to be plugged into the computer system of the Head of Operation of a particular branch, to retrieve the information technology configuration settings from the computer system and pave the way for the fraudsters to move customers’ funds out of the bank.
The anti-graft body said the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.
