Interestingly, the hackers of the leading global crypto space known as Afriq Arbitrage System have been arrested by INTERPOL Nigeria.
Sadly, contrary to the falsehood that Arabian hackers were the brain behind it, the heinous crime was perpetrated by one of the staffers, Abayomi Segun Oluwasesan, and his cohorts.
Check by us revealed that AAS was built on top-notch security architecture by the founder, Jesam Micheal, which defends itself against any aggressive attacks from external sources or forces.
However, just like the biblical story of how Judas betrayed Jesus Christ, Abayomi Segun Oluwasesan, who was employed by his boss on the 15th of June, 2022 to work as a web developer, literally hacked the platform at a time when his boss, Jesam Micheal went for a liver transplant and entrusted the codes to him.
Overwhelmed by greed, Abayomi who was entrusted with the sensitive data for the smooth operations of the company, engaged the services of his cohorts, disrupting the smooth operations of the platform and stealing hard-earned investors’ money running into several billions.
Checks revealed that AAS is a global phenomenon with over 100,000 investors from over 75 counties. Thinking his employer, Jesam Micheal would not survive the operation, he withdrew several millions of dollars and became an instant rich dude with an astonishing flamboyant lifestyle overnight. He became the owner of a car dealership known as FIDORAY Autos and imported over 30 exotic wonders on wheels. He acquired Tanzanian and Dubai citizenship. Aside from that, he bought state-of-the-art properties in the UK, Dubai, Tanzania, and Nigeria. One of the plazas he acquired in Lagos was to the tune of N450m, landed properties around Dangote refineries to the tune of N1b, and splashed a billion naira on the interior decoration of the Mesh 3-star hotel in Mainland, Lagos State. A nobody Abayomi was travelling across the globe with investors’ money on first-class tickets. His dubious activities literally crashed the lucrative platform on the 15th of May, 2023.
However, the long arm of justice caught up with him when his boss survived the health challenge and was shocked to discover the criminal activities of Abayomi who went AWOL on hearing about the recovery of Jesam Micheal. Thus, the manhunt for his arrest began spearheaded by his boss, Jesam Micheal, alongside the INTERPOL. He was eventually arrested and willingly admitted by confession that he was guilty of stealing the investors’ money blindly. His crimes bother on financial crimes, data theft, cyber security crimes, and fraudulent takeover of the online financial platform to perpetrate cyber financial crimes.

Sadly, his criminal activities have left investors in the throes of suicide, pain, and agony as their hard-earned money and lifetime investments were stolen callously by Abayomi. In an emotionally laden voice, some of the investors narrate their ordeals on how the unfortunate incident has crashed their world and left them in pain…
Obi from Anambra State joined AAS from inception. She has two accounts and brought people into the platforms. “ I am not happy. Since the unfortunate incident occurred”
Roselyn Bamisaye From Abuja – “I knew the CEO last year through a lady. I am a retiree. All my money went into the scheme. My husband too who is a retiree was a subscriber to the tune N3m as a starter. He registered a lot of family members and the return investment was moving on smoothly until Abayomi jeopardize our lifeline. We are not happy. The widows we have been helping via this investment are now crying helplessly. It has not been easy at all.
Onyekachi Timothy Ibe- I got to know AAS through my sister. I started with $2000 and increased it to $10000. I made up to $22000 as profit before Abayomi hacked the platform. It’s so saddening.
Akinpelu Sunday from Osun state- A pastor from Kenya introduced me to the platform. The conception of AAS by the CEO was borne out of ingenuity, simplicity, and honesty. I brought a lot of family members and clients to the platform. We put in huge money as investors. The return on investment was real and huge. Everything was moving on smoothly until CEO was sick and went for treatment. Sadly a common enemy, a dangerous serpent called Abayomi hacked into the system and caused us so much problem. Whosoever tries to pervert justice will meet with Karma.
Alex Adaboi- A Nollywood actor from Benue state but based IN Abuja. I go to know about it like 10 months ago. Prior to that period, I just came out of a bad experience. I lost about $80,000 and my kid brother here too lost about $70,000. We joined AAS because it was genuine and had a real face behind it. We have been able to b taking care of the widows in our own little way and felt this platform will help us interpret our dreams. Sadly, his fool called Abayomi came in to destabilize things. This has brought in untold pains and agony and made me quite suicidal. It’s so painful. He destroyed a lot of souls and lifelines.
Captain David Adabo- a pilot by profession. I know about Arbitrate since I was a teenager. I lost a lot through fake platforms but my belief was rekindled through AAS. His confidence and knowledge were amazing. We put in a lot of resources. Truth be told, everything the CEO told us about the trade, he fulfilled them until the wicked Abayomi scattered things. It was annoying. Truth be told, the CEO through AAS really trained and taught us about this trade and everything was going smoothly as he said it would. Even the devil is clapping for this criminal and greedy Abayomi.
Micheal from Abia state- I got to know about AAS through a friend in January 2023. I had fallen victim to Ponzi schemes in the past and lost all interest in online trading. However, when I joined the AAS platform, my passion was rekindled and I was really making money. It was going smoothly. In fact, my wife who is a critic of online trading joined when she discovered I was making money. But the beautiful story turned upside down because of the criminality of a common enemy known as Abayomi. From that April till now, things have turned upside down. My landlord has given me a quit notice. It has been so traumatic because of the callousness of one fellow called Abayomi.
Abraham Lawal from Lagos. What prompted me to join was the sincerity of the CEO. I registered my wife, my son, and other family members. Sadly, the unfortunate incident happened in April and the agony is uncontrollable.
Godwin Stanley- I got to know about this platform last year. Everything was moving smoothly until this unfortunate incident. Now I turned to beg for survival.

In a concerted effort to ensure a thorough and comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s untimely death, Governor Sanwo-Olu has taken the initiative to involve the Department of Security Services (DSS).
The aim is to widen the scope of the inquiry through inter-agency collaboration and the utilization of state-of-the-art technology to uncover the truth.

University of Lagos Associate Professor accused of rape by female undergraduate
In a disturbing development, a female undergraduate student, whose identity has been withheld, has come forward with allegations of rape against an Associate Professor in the Department of Botany at the University of Lagos, Akoka.
The accused lecturer has been identified as Dr Akeem Kadiri, as the victim alleged that the incident took place during a visit to Dr Kadiri’s office to address concerns related to her academic results.
Instead of addressing her academic issues, the undergraduate alleged that Dr. Kadiri sexually assaulted her on August 16, 2023.
As expected, the victim reported the incident to the Inclusive Social Welfare and Empowerment Foundation (InclusiveSWEF), a non-governmental organization.
InclusiveSWEF subsequently filed a formal complaint with the Gender Unit of the state police command and in a swift response to the issue, the Officer in Charge of the Gender Unit secured a warrant of arrest for Dr Akeem Kadiri through the state High Court.
The Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos has also been brought into the investigation.
Confirming the incident, Benjamin Hundeyin, the State Police Public Relations Officer, stated, “He is to appear in court in the coming days.”
The University of Lagos has acknowledged the ongoing investigation and in a statement by the spokesperson/Head of the Information Unit for Unilag, Mrs Adejoke Alaga-Ibraheem, said,
- “UNILAG Management, on August 28, received a letter from the Nigeria Police Force, inviting an employee of the university for questioning. The employee was immediately informed of the development and advised to comply.”
She further added,
- “On August 29, the employee complied. While we are not yet privy to the full details of the incident that led to the arrest of the employee, we are fully aware that the investigation is ongoing, and we are cooperating with security agencies to ensure that the matter is resolved in the interest of justice.”
