The Federal Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) of the Nigerian Police Force, National Cybercrime Center (NPF-NCCC), has launched an investigation into allegations against Linus Williams, the CEO of BLORD Group of Companies.

 

The inquiry has been extended to several entities under the BLORD umbrella, including BLORD REAL ESTATE LTD, BLORD JETPAYE LIMITED, and BILLPOINT TECHNOLOGY.

 

The investigation followed complaints that these companies were involved in a series of serious offences.

 

These include cryptocurrency fraud, aiding and abetting internet fraud, engaging in computer-related fraud, funding terrorism, and failing to comply with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) regulatory frameworks.

 

In a statement released by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the police emphasized their commitment to thorough and diligent investigations.

 

“Our cyber space in Nigeria must be safe and secure by all means. We are committed to achieving that,” Adejobi asserted.

 

He highlighted the critical importance of maintaining the integrity of Nigeria’s digital environment, indicating that no effort would be spared in ensuring that the allegations were meticulously investigated.

 

The allegations have come at a time when Nigeria is intensifying its efforts to combat cybercrime and enhance the security of its digital infrastructure.

 

The focus on regulatory compliance, particularly concerning the CBN Act, underscores the country’s commitment to upholding financial regulations and preventing illicit financial activities.

 

As the investigation unfolds, the FCID will continue to scrutinize the activities of BLORD Group of Companies and its affiliates.

 

The outcome of the probe is expected to have significant implications for the involved entities and the broader efforts to enforce cyber security and regulatory

compliance in Nigeria.
