Two Nigerian brothers, Samuel Ogoshi and Samson Ogoshi have been extradited to the USA on Sunday, for sexually extorting teenage boys in Michigan and across the country.
The Ogoshi brothers were said to be involved in a global network sextortion operation that targeted more than 100 victims and led to the death of a 17-year-old boy in the States.
US Attorney Mark Totten confirms in the latest press release that both of them were arrested on the back of a joint investigation by the FBI and Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and are now in federal custody in Michigan.
The elder brother Samuel, who’s 22 years old faces single charges of sexual exploitation and attempted sexual exploitation of a minor resulting in the death of 17-year-old Jordan DeMay, who committed suicide after falling victim to Samuel’s sextortion scam.
Their third accomplice Ezekiel Ejemeh Robert was however said to have been picked up in Nasarawa state, Nigeria, with his extradition still pending.
Totten said: “Sextortion is a horrible crime. To those who commit these crimes: we will pursue you around the world. And to those who are victims: please know we stand ready to help you.”
