The suspect who had been at large, was finally arrested on Thursday May 27, 2021 and has made useful statement.

Mr Omotade-Sparks who hails from Badagry Lagos State was declared wanted by the EFCC in November 2020 after efforts to apprehend him failed. He is the alleged mastermind of a huge pyramid investment scheme through which many citizens were defrauded of monies to the tune of over Thirty Two Million Naira.

He had floated a phony online digital currency called “Pinkoin” which lured many Nigerians to invest between One Thousand Naira to One Hundred Thousand Naira with a promise of unrealistic returns and went ahead to distribute a payment card called “Pink Card” to further confuse his victims.
