The extradition of Olaniyi Jones Makinde

26 year old Olaniyi Jones Makinde is a wanted man in the USA for being part of a 7-man criminal gang that stole $3.2 million from payroll companies and banks between 2009 and 2010, by using fake websites to trick people into giving up their online usernames and passwords. The other six are: Karlis Karklins, Charles Chidi, Waya Nwaki, Osarhieme Obaygbona, Marvin Dion Hill and Alphonsus Osuala

When the activities of his gang was discovered by FBI in 2010, Olaniyi escaped the US and returned to Nigeria. Unfortunately for him, the US police informed the EFCC about his activities in the US and his wanted status there. The EFCC tracked him down in Nigeria and arrested him.

He's been in Ikoyi prisons since January 2012 where he will be until May 30th where a Federal High Court will hear the extradition request filed by the office of the Attorney General of the Federation against him.

According to the FBI report, aside from stealing from companies and banks, Olaniyi also stole from individuals by assuming the false identity of a sexy white chick named Brenda Stuart, and tricking men into sending money and their account details to him.

I think it is wrong for this dude to be extradited. America will protect their citizens at all cost regardless of whatever crime they commit. Although, the state of Nigerian Prisons is vile, this boy should not be made to spend more than 6 months in jail like Bode George, Cecilia Ibru and co.

Dont blame your leaders for everything but for him to be able to travel out of the country then he chooses this wrong path so stop putting blame on anybody but him

If he stole the money then he deserves everything he gets. You don't have to put a gun to someone's head whilst stealing to become a thief. Fucking disgrace. Everyday for the thief, one day for the owner.

Anonymous said...

I agree with u jor!!! The people that send the money to the "sexy" lady are the real thieves, because they had bad motives in their head when they were sending the money. Maybe he should have hide in a village, no one would have been able to find him :(

Some of this comments make me sad. Some people are saying he should be freed because he didn't use a gun or because he's a fine boy. That's so very stupid. You don't need to use a gun to be a thief. I bet none of these people will make such comment if they were victims of his tricks and he had robbed them of their life savings.
This is the attitute that's holding Nigeria back. If this is the way the youth of this country thinks then forget the popular sentiment "Nigeria go better" because it never will. That's why our politicians have no shame stealing public funds. Stupid sense of entitlement. They and apparently many young people in Nigeria have the mindset that simply because the money's there and they have access to it means they can take it. Go work for your own money.
Now we depend on foriegn countries prosecuting these criminals- just look at Ibori, no court in Nigeria would have sent him to jail. Let this one get extradited and prosecuted, if found guilty, let him be punished.

He didn't put a gun to anyones head to get the money. America u cannot govern ur country n force us on how to govern ours. If it were to be one of their own their judiciary system will give a reason why he should probably serve few weeks n then visit a psychiatrist for evaluation n counselling, community service too oh but here they want us to kill him n lock him off cos its a shame a Nigerian beat your intelligence . For those that paid cash cos they thought it was a lady , they got their own fair share. As long as he didn't carry a gun pls a warning befits him , yes o its even in their law.

He should face justice here jor, why should US dictate to Nigerians?! After all Dick Cheney wasn't extradited to Nig after Halliburton scandal broke in the US! Furthermore what about ex gov Alamaseigha isn't he wanted in the UK? Why doesn't the AGF work on having him & others like them extradited instead of focussing on this 'small fry'? Just sayin.. * kanye shrug*

I wish U.S will get more serious about the Nigerian scam in places like California, Texas, Chicago, it's a lot of them there. God bless America. And, I wish U.S will go after the big criminals in the Naija government since Nigerians won't do it themselves bcos they want to keep stealing money.

If it was the reversed US govt would have protected their citizen but over here in 9ja we can't protect our own. For the foolish people that willingly gave their money to the boy abi girl hw does it make it the boys fault and for the stupid companies that lack efficient security system is it the boys fault that he's smart and they are dumb? Abeg they should just let the boy be.

EFCC can catch and arrest and jail the ones that America wants. If we ask them to catch and jail corrupt politicians now...na dere wey nepa take light. Mstcheeew.

By the way, was Nigeria able to extradite Dick Cheney to Nigeria to answer questions regarding the Haliburton scandal???
