(CMR) Two Nigerian nationals were arrested in Jamaica on Wednesday (July 22) after they went to pick up a parcel from the airport's cargo area, which contained bank cards that they could not account for.
Reports are that 34-year-old Folashade Bakare and 32-year-old Yusuf Abiodun Bakare, both of Lagos in Nigeria visited the Sangster International Airport in St. James to collect a package.
The package was searched and customs officers discovered that it contained bank cards.
When they could not satisfactorily account for the items, the police were called in.
A subsequent investigation was conducted at the residence where the foreigners lived and police say that additional devices that reportedly contained identity information of persons residing overseas were recovered.
Detectives attached to the Area One Lottery Scamming Task Force have charged the Nigerians for suspected breaches of the Law Reform (Fraudulent Transactions) (Special Provisions) Act.
They will appear in the St James Parish Court on Wednesday, July 29 to answer to the charges.
