Remand me in EFCC Custody” Blogger Behind Fake “EFCC Cell” Tweet Begs
Chukwuebuka Washington Dikeocha, the blogger who admitted to publishing fake pictures of a cell of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission through his Twitter handle: @TheRealDayne, on Tuesday pleaded to be remanded in the custody of the anti-graft agency following his arraignment.

A police source said: “Police started the search for Dike in April 2015 after two armed robbery suspects, Akinropo Ogunsina and Jimoh Akeem, mentioned his name during interrogation that he was the receiver of the cars they used to snatch. Ogunsina confessed that he and his gang members snatched two Honda Accord 230 model cars and Sienna Space Bus and sold to Dike. Unaware that Ogunsina had been arrested, Dike repeatedly kept calling Ogunsina’s phone asking if he had another snatched car for sale.”

Adejobi said: “The arrest of the gang leader, led to the arrest of the other two members. They were arrested within the metropolis. The gang leader was picked up at his residence at No, 20 Igbehin Street by police operatives attached to Ibara Police Station. The other suspects, Odejinmi and Arogundade were also arrested at Akinlotan Compound and Ijeun Shekenu Compound respectively by the policemen on Thursday
