JUSTICE Patricia Ajoku of a Federal High Court in Ibadan, on Wednesday, ordered that two men, who allegedly hacked into the account of a housewife, with intent to commit fraud, be remanded in a correctional centre.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) charged Olayemi Ayola and Olalekan Adekunle with two counts of conspiracy and account hacking.
Justice Ajoku ordered that the defendants be remanded in Agodi Correctional Centre, pending bail application.
She adjourned the hem until Nov. 26.
Earlier, EFCC Counsel, Mr A.S. Suleiman told the court that Ayola and Adekunle and six others, at large, hacked into the WEMA bank account of Mrs Oluwakemi Agbola between 2016 and 2020 with the intent to commit fraud.
Suleiman alleged that the two defendants used their knowledge of the computer and hacked into Agbola’s account to steal her money.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 22A (I and ii)(2) of the cyber crime prohibition prevention Act 2015.
They pleaded not guilty to the charges.
