49 Nigerians Arrested In Senegal During A Midnight Sting Operation (Photos)



According to the Dakar gendarmerie, A total of 49 suspected cyber criminals were arrested last Saturday, November 2, inside a house in Senegal during a midnight sting operation. They were found working on different laptops. According to a report, the suspects were allegedly planning a “massive” cyber attack based on the first elements of the investigation.

The piracy was to target the operator, Orange Senegal, who had filed a complaint for “attempted intrusion into a computer system“.

It was the investigators from the gendarmerie’s research section who made the huge sweep. On Saturday afternoon, mobile phones and especially computers, about sixty of them, were seized by the police. “It’s a very organized team that has been stopped” said a source aware of the case.


Nigerians based in Senegal are said to be linked to piracy targeting Orange Côte d’Ivoire in June. They would have diverted the equivalent of 449 million CFA francs, nearly 700,000 euros, according to the elements of the investigation. Two other recent computer intrusions in Sierra Leone would also be credited to them.
