In the fight against cyber crimes, another one bites the dust. Emmanuel Aneke, CEO of Istanbul Entertainment aka Otunba Lamba aka Otunba Cash was arrested in Turkey.
The big spender and members of his gang were arrested in a Turkish sting operation, over a $1.4m cyber fraud.
Otunba Lamba needs no introduction in the Nigerian entertainment scene. Musicians like Slim case, CDQ and Oritsefemi sing his praises as a moneybag.
He is rumoured to be romantically connected to Toyin Lawani and they were in a serious relationship leading to marriage.
According to grapevines, Otunba Cash is the sugar daddy of several Nollywood actresses and is allegedly sponsoring their expensive lifestyle.
Reportedly, Otunba Lamba has been under investigation which escalated when the Danish Police via Interpol sent a letter to the Turkish Police department on May 9 2018.
According to the said letter, there was unauthorized access to GM Plast company email address. Investigations revealed that the aforementioned company paid monies into Turkish bank accounts.
Furthermore, the Turkish Cybercrime department revealed that a Nigerian gang in Turkey were behind the hack.
Otunba Cash and his gang would hack into the email accounts of big companies and clone their payment advises.
The fraudulent syndicate will then go on to trick these companies into paying monies in font accounts created for this purpose.
Emmanuel Aneke and his gang members (O. Popoola, AA Oyemade, AT Fajolu and BO Balogun) were arrested in a luxury hotel in Bağcılar, Turkey.
At the time of his arrest, the Turkish cybercrimes unit recovered: 17phones, 15 sim cards, $85,000, €5,000, 4 computers, 5 expensive necklaces, 2 rings and several fraudulent documents.
