SEE The Face Of The Man That Hacked Into A Nigerian Bank And Stole N1.87b
A man identified as Salau Abdulmalik Femi has been arrested after he allegedly hacked into the server of a Nigerian bank and stole N1.87 billion.
Salau according to the Police is the kingpin of a syndicate that specializes in hacking into the servers of banks and corporate agencies.
He was arrested after he allegedly hacked the Flex-Cube Universal Banking System (FCUBS) of a first-generation bank.
The 38-year-old was arrested by detectives from the Special Fraud Unit (SFU) of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).
The spokesman of SFU, Ikoyi, Lagos, DSP Eyitayo Johnson, in a statement, said the suspect, using application software, created fictitious credits totaling N1.87bn on the accounts of three of the bank’s customers.
According to DSP Johnson, the suspect successfully consummated debits (outflows) amounting to N417.5m through internet banking transfers to other banks.
He said the unit while acting swiftly on a petition from the bank, contacted the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the deposit money banks which customers were beneficiaries of the fraudulent funds and that in the process was able to salvage a substantial amount.
“Items recovered from the suspect include an Apple laptop and an iPhone. He and operators of some Bureau De Change (BDC) who used to launder the monies will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded,” DSP Johnson said.

In a SIMILAR vein, a suspected fraudster has been arrested after he was caught using the sim card in a stolen phone to transfer funds out of the owner’s bank account.
The fraudster calls the act, “wire wire”.
In a trending video, the young man revealed how he uses the BVN on a stolen sim card to transfer money to an “untraceable” account. He said he looks for the bank code of the bank attached to the sim card and then begins his operation.
On how he gets the BVN number, the suspect said he has a code he dials to access that on any sim card he lays his hands on.
Speaking in Yoruba, the suspect while being interrogated, said he uses the bank codes on any sim card that receives bank alerts to transfer money to another account to which he has access.
He also mentioned that he takes loans from the empty salary banks accounts by using the sim cards to request a loan from the owners’ bank.
