A Nigerian hacker identified as Victor Majekodunmi has been arrested for hacking into Sound Sultan’s Instagram page to defraud people while impersonating his wife.
Brother to the late singer, Baba Dee, who confirmed the arrest noted that the hacker was now in the custody of the police.
Thanking Nigerians and the Lagos State Police Commissioner for their support in nabbing the criminal, Baba Dee who reacted on his Instagram account wrote; ”This is the face of the scammer that hacked into my brother @soundsultan Instagram account after his death. His Name is victor Majekodunmi, a young with great potential yet so evil and heartless.
”I’m happy to announce that we have taken control of the account and he is presently cooling off in police custody. Thanks to everybody that showed concern and helped nab the young, hardened criminal.”
