Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Port Harcourt’s Zonal Office have arrested a notorious FaceBook accounts hacker, Okohwan Kelvin. He was arrested recently in Warri, Delta State.

His arrest followed a discreet monitoring of his online activities, based on complaints from members of the public alleging that he hacked and took over their FaceBook accounts, after they clicked on a phisting link he sent to them.

According to EFCC, preliminary investigations showed that Kelvin had hacked about 100 FaceBook accounts using phishing links generated from an online hacking website.

It was also discovered that the suspect was selling hacked FaceBook accounts to other fraudsters who were using them for various nefarious online activities.  In some cases, he used many of the accounts himself to defraud friends of his victims, the commission stressed, adding that he would be charged to court as soon as detailed investigations are concluded.
