A Nigerian suspected engaged in cyber-hacking activities has been arrested in Las Pinas City, Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Jaime Morente said.

“Scammers and fraudsters are not welcome in the country,” said Morente in a statement.

“These aliens will definitely arrested, deported, and blacklisted for being undesirable,” he added.

Morente identified the Nigerian as Henry Chidi Obioma, 27, who was arrested last April 21 by BI intelligence agents.

The arrest was made after the BI received information that Obioma has been working without the proper visa and permit.

The BI also learned that he was also involved in the online banking fraud that affected some 700 clients of a large bank.

During his arrest, the Nigerian failed to present any immigration documents which makes him an undocumented alien.
