Yahoo: EFCC Tells Court What They Discovered On Naira Marley’s IPhone, Laptop

The prosecution counsel tendered as exhibit before a Federal High Court Lagos, an IPhone and Laptop belonging to Nigerian Musician, Azeez Fashola, a. k. a Naira Marley, who is facing fraud charges.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had preferred an 11-count charge against the musician bordering on conspiracy, possession of counterfeit Credit Cards, and Fraud, NAN reports.

Also mentioned in the charge was one Yad Isril, who is said to still be at large.

The Popular “Is a goal” singer was arraigned on May 20 before Justice Nicholas Oweibo, but he denied the charges.

Following a bail application by defence counsel, Mr Olalekan Ojo, (SAN), the court had granted Fashola bail in the sum of N2 million with sureties in like sum.

When trial resumed on Wednesday, an investigator with the EFCC, Mr Nuru Buhari, narrated how the commission retrieved “damning evidence of credit card fraud from Naira Marley’s IPhone and laptop.

Buhari, told the court that he works in the EFCC’s Forensic Department.

He said that an analysis of Marley’s laptop showed that he frequented top five most-visited websites which dealt in buying and selling stolen credit cards.

Responding to questions from the prosecutor, Mr Rotimi Oyedepo, the witness said that during analysis, the cache file and history file revealed that the most frequently visited sites by the user of the computer included:

“arder007.org, Zuni.sa, nationwidecheckbalance.co.uk, ferunshop.net AMD cocoa.co.uk,”

According to him, analysis of the websites revealed that:

“Web 1 is where stolen card information is being sold to intending fraudsters, web 2 is for stolen credit cards specifically for the UK, whereas web 3 is an online website designed for UK cardholders to check their balance wherever they are around the world.

He continued: “Web 4 is a dark web meaning an underground tunnel in the Internet where stolen credit card information are sold and traded, web 5 is an online shopping mall where members are given discounts for shopping from certain shops.”

The witness told the court that his team also found a file named, Select BIN 101.txt and .txt., and after opening the file they discovered it contained “stolen credit card information with special status that allows transaction up to 12,000 dollars without a pin or physical card.

“When we ran the BIN code search for the first six digits of the cards, it revealed they are Visa cards issued by Barclay’s bank, Sandander UK plc,” he said

He said that analysis of installed apps on Marley’s laptop showed that two of them, IP VANISH and TOR Browser, enabled the owner of the computer to disguise his identity and location.

“The TOR Browser is sometimes called the Onion; most of the criminals cover their tracks with various layers just like an onion using this app to make it near impossible for a tracker to track their location.

“The IP VANISH is a virtual private network, which provides that the actual computer and location of usage cannot be identified. It also gives the user the ability to change their location,” he said.

According to the charge, the defendant allegedly committed the offences on different dates between Nov. 26, 2018, Dec.11, 2018, and May 10,

The charge alleges that Fashola and his accomplices conspired to use different Access Bank ATM Cards to defraud their victims.

It said that the defendant allegedly used Access Card number 5264711020433662 issued to another persons, in a bid to obtain fraudulent financial gains.

He was said to have possessed these counterfeit credit cards, belonging to different cardholders, with intent to defraud, which also amounted to theft.

The offences contravenes the provisions of Section 1, 23 (1) (b), 27 (1}, 33, 33(9) Cyber Crime (Prohibition) Prevention Act, 2015.

The judge adjourned the case till Oct. 24 for continuation of hearing.

Champions League: Read What Lampard Said About Christian Pulisic After Chelsea’s 1-0 Win Over Ajax

Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, has hailed winger, Christian Pulisic, following the Blues’ UEFA Champions League 1-0 victory over Ajax on Wednesday.

According to Lampard, Pulisic deserved a huge credit after the 21-year-old’s brilliant performance against Ajax.

Michy Batshuayi scored the only goal of the match in the second half of the encounter following an assist from Christian Pulisic to give Lampard’s men all three points against the host in Amsterdam.

“You have to give Christian (Pulisic) huge credit, because the assist was as important as the goal,” Lampard was quoted by Football London as telling reporters after the match.

“His performance tonight and the last couple off the bench might show that. I didn’t listen to the outside talk. I understood the quality of Christian, he is just 21. I have options.

“Christian wants to know what is going on always. I have stayed calm with it. He wants to do well. Training like he has makes me very happy.”

Lampard added: “We respected Ajax, that is how we should be. I do focus on ourselves. The great thing at the moment is the desire and I think we are in the right direction. The signs are good. Five wins in a row can be dangerous, six wins could be even more dangerous.”
Jose Mourinho In Talks With New Club

Jose Mourinho In Talks With New Club

Jose Mourinho is in “regular contact” with Borussia Dortmund and is even learning German, ahead of a move to the Westfalenstadion, Bild reports.

Mourinho has not had a managerial job, since he was sacked at Manchester United in December 2018.

The Portuguese is currently working as a pundit with Sky Sports, but is keen to return to management and Dortmund are on his radar.

Current Dortmund boss, Lucian Favre, is not understood to be in any immediate jeopardy. But the German giants have made an inconsistent start to the campaign and chiefs are looking at the long-term picture.

The chance to challenge Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga dominance is something which could appeal to Mourinho.

However, he would be forced to take a significant drop in wages, from the £24million-a-year he pocketed at United.

Intimate Talks: 3 Body Language Indicators That Your Relationship Is In Trouble

Intimate Talks: 3 Body Language Indicators That Your Relationship Is In Trouble

A relationship that is at the verge of breaking results from having irreconcilable differences between the partners, poor communication and dishonesty among other causes.

It is important to keep watch of the body language exhibited between you and yo partner as this can raise some red flags for your relationship. These body language signs are;

1. Leaning away from each other

Once you notice that your partner is leaning away from you when seated next to each other or in other times he/she opts to sit across to you, is a sign things are up to no good. Emotionally connected partners sit besides each other and tend to tilt their heads towards each other.

2. Furrowed eyebrows

Furrowed eyebrows implies negative criticism and unwillingness to agree on something. The moment you notice that your partner shows up for a conversation with furrows on his/her forehead which extend to the eyebrows, it is a sign they are not ready to solve a certain problem but only trying to be defensive.

3. Lack of eye contact

Maintaining a good eye contact with your partner shows emotional openness, trust and love. However, if your partner previously maintained eye contact and has of late been avoiding to look you into the eyes, it is important to talk with them otherwise your relationship might be heading south.

Police Arrest Suspect In $15,000 Bitcoin Kidnap Ransom

Police Arrest Suspect In $15,000 Bitcoin Kidnap Ransom

The Nigerian Police Force, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Command has tracked down and arrested the main suspect in connection with the kidnap incident involving an exchange of bitcoins worth $15,000 ransom payment, which was the first of its kind.

This is coming as security sources have alleged growing insider connections to most kidnap incidents involving prominent victims especially those from the northern part of Nigeria.

A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chieftain, Dr. Umar Ardo, was in September 2019 forced to pay $15,000 in bitcoins to get his daughter, Ms Aisha Umar, freed by kidnappers.

PRNigeria investigation reveals that the suspect, one Saadu Abubakari, who is currently in the Police custody has made a useful confession that is helping to crack what is regarded as a new trend in kidnapping cases.

The FCT Commissioner of Police, Bala Ciroma, gave a hint of Abubakari’s arrest at the weekend in his weekly update when he disclosed that the Anti-Kidnapping Squad had nabbed “13 members of kidnapping syndicate and other dangerous criminals”.

“Sequel to the ongoing investigation into a reported kidnap incident at Asokoro on 14th September 2019, Police detectives from the Command Anti-Kidnapping Squad have arrested one Saadu Abubakari ‘m’ 23 years in connection with the incident. The suspect was arrested around Apo after the phone number used for the criminal act was traced to him. The Command is making concerted effort to arrest other persons involved in the criminal act,” Ciroma Stated.

The Police had after facilitating the payment of the ransom and release of the suspect engaged its intelligent operatives who swung into action, trailed the suspect (Abubakari) and finally tracked him down in Apo where he was arrested.

Police sources informed PRNigeria that Abubakari, who is a commercial motorcycle rider (Okada) admitted to owning the sim card which was registered in February 2018 but he sold it to another suspect (now at large) who bought it from him for N1000. Abubakari who hails from Kano said he was tricked by a certain female suspect who acted to have lost her way, contacts and desperate for a new sim card to make calls.

“Speaking to him in Hausa, the female suspect negotiated to buy his sim card for N1000 with which the kidnap for ransom deal was made,” Abubakari was said to have confessed.

Further findings also revealed that Abubakari who is illiterate and only speaks Hausa, claims to “have never stolen before, doesn’t know anything about bitcoin or understand how it works, doesn’t have a bank account or ATM card.”

Police said that while the crack team of Intelligence and Investigative officers are on the verge of unravelling the case which according to the sources “sets a precedence in the kidnapping cases because of the bitcoin”, yet there are challenges.

An intelligent officer noted that while the Police are monitoring the situation and so far more than $9000 has been withdrawn from the bitcoin but the sophistication of the technology involved has opened a new chapter challenging their investigative skills.

The officer, however, assured that they have found a way in overcoming the obstacles posed by tracking the bitcoins and would soon nab the culprits.

“We now know that we need a lot of tools, collaborations and more training. We have almost wrapped up this case but there are still gaps and challenges in tracking the bitcoins owing to not only the technical nature of the transactions but the technological tools needed to crack it,” the officer said.

Speaking further, the sources revealed that the investigation has so far disclosed a near certainty of insider connections and involvement in the kidnap incident, adding that Police have uncovered a growing trend of “insider information from family members, other relatives and domestic staff deeply involved in these kidnappings.”
