One Okohwan Kelvin who is alleged to be a notorious Facebook hacker has been arrested by operatives from the Port Harcourt Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The suspect who is alleged to have hacked thousands of Facebook accounts was apprehended  in Warri, Delta State.

According to the statement issued by the anti-graft agency, the arrest of Okohwan Kelvin 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.

Preliminary investigations showed that Okohwan Kelvin had hacked about one hundred Facebook accounts using phishing links generated from an online hacking website.

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.

He would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
