An adage says the frog does not run around in the daytime. It is a deep concept that best describes why the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) visited the home of a popular musician, John Njeng Njeng, popularly referred as Skales.

What were they looking for at the home of a musician? 


Why EFCC Raided Skales Home And What They Found

Well, the anti-graft agency had received intelligence report about a dating crime that were being perpetrated by two individuals.


Before the raid of Skales’ home, they had received a tip off that the individuals were there.

The operatives then decided to show up at an odd time.


Skales and two other guys were at home when the anti-graft agency personnels came in from the back door.

In that raid, the two prime suspects involved in the alleged internet fraud were arrested.

According to the EFCC, the raid happened on Tuesday morning at House F10, Victoria Crest 4, Lekki, Lagos.

In a statement on its X account, the EFCC said: “The suspects: Udemba Chukwuemeka (a.k.a Jody) and Jamal Jamiu Onasola (a.k.a. Jamal) were arrested at the residence of a musician: John Njeng Njeng (a.k.a Skales)”.


Also, the agency said they were suspected of being involved in dating scam.

Furthermore, it said the suspects described Njeng (Skales) as their “mentor”.


“While Chukwuemeka has been in Njeng’s residence for two years, Onasola has only stayed there for few months.

“They will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded,” the agency added.

It is unclear whether Skales will be dragged into the case, since they were in his home.

Dating scam is popular among internet fraudsters who profess love to older or younger women or men. Most times they go for persons they could extort money from.
