Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Port Harcourt's Zonal Office have arrested a notorious FaceBook accounts hacker, Okohwan Kelvin.

The Head Media and Publicity for EFCC, Tony Orilade said suspect was arrested recently in Warri, Delta State.

"His arrest followed 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 phishing link he sent to them.'

Orilade told The Nigerian Voice that preliminary investigations showed that Kelvin had hacked about one hundred FaceBook accounts using phishing links generated from an online hacking website.

According to the EFCC spokesman, "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."

Orilade said the suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
