Sex Assault: EFCC seeks extradition of brothers, one other to US

May 9, 2023

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had sought the extradition of brothers, one other to the US.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s Lagos Zonal Command has initiated extradition proceedings against three suspects, Samson Ogoshi, his brother, Samuel, and Ezekiel Ejemeh, at the Federal High Court, Abuja judicial division, for exploitation of a minor and production of sex assault.

On December 1, 2022, the Ogoshis and Ejemeh were charged in a United States Federal Court on counts of exploitation of adolescents and creation of child pornography resulting in death, conspiracy to distribute child pornography, and conspiracy to commit online stalking.

According to investigations, the suspects planned to conduct sex-based extortion of minors and adults in the United States of America.

Wilson Uwujaren, the EFCC’s spokesperson, stated this in a Monday night statement acquired by our correspondent.

“The trio, investigations revealed, hacked some social media accounts, posing as young attractive women to entice unsuspecting victims to send their sexually explicit photographs,” Uwujaren added.

“These images were then used to blackmail the victims, forcing them to make large financial payments.

“As a consequence, Samuel Ogoshi has been charged with sexual exploitation and attempted sexual exploitation of minors, which resulted in the death of one Jordan DeMay, an offense with a potential sentence of life in prison and a mandatory minimum of 30 years in jail.”

The three is accused of conspiring to sexually abuse youngsters by forcing them to create child pornographic photos, which they then used to blackmail them.

“They are also charged with conspiracy to distribute child pornography, which includes sending images to minors, their families, and friends, as well as conspiracy to commit stalking through the Internet,” Uwujaren stated.

Both offenses are punishable by a minimum of five years and a maximum of twenty years in jail.

“While the Ogoshis were apprehended around the Ojo axis of Lagos in February 2023,” Uwujaren claimed, “Ezekiel was apprehended in Nasarawa by EFCC operatives.” (Nigerian Tribune)
