Two Nigerian nationals, including a former priest have been arrested for allegedly cloning debit and credit cards, the police said. The accused have been identified as Oluwatoyin and Nosa Tony Lawani. During interrogation, the police said, it was revealed that a Bulgarian national namely Eris used to steal the debit and credit cards data by placing skimmer devices and hidden cameras in ATMs and after decoding the ATM card numbers, he would send this data to Oluwatoyin to paste it on empty cards. Nosa used to assist Oluwatoyin in pasting this data on the cards available with him with the help of a magnetic strip reader and writer machine. Thereafter, they used to withdraw money with these cloned cards.
