The Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has revealed that it facilitated the extradition of Samuel Ogoshi and his brother, Samson, to the United States for sexually extorting several young men and teenage boys.
According to a statement by the EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, the victims were located in the Western District of Michigan and across the U.S. and the commission, in May 2023, initiated the extradition proceedings at the Federal High Court, Abuja Judicial Division.
The Ogoshi brothers alongside one Ezekiel Ejemeh Robert were accused of exploitation of minors and production of pornography, following a request by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
They are further charged with conspiracy to distribute child pornography, which borders on sending images to minors, their families and friends, as well as conspiracy to commit stalking through the Internet.
EFCC said the offences carry a minimum of five years and maximum 20 years imprisonment.
