Owoseni Gabriel wanted to play on the intelligence of operatives of the Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission but was caught in the act.

During a sting operation to arrest him and other fraudsters, Gabriel, particularly, wore a female dress and a wig to evade arrest.

However, his trick failed. He was arrested alongside 32 others for their alleged involvement in computer-related fraud.
