CYBER CRIME: Music Blogger Lucky Freeman Arrested For Allegedly Hacking Social Media Accounts Of Abuja Artist -Numero.

It's sad and painful to report this but for the sake of precaution and to serve as a deterrent to others this story is now headline.

Music blogger and owner of Howfa9ja blog, Lucky Freeman was on Friday arrested for allegedly hacking into an Abuja based artist social media accounts.

It was revealed that Lucky Freeman had a transaction with the N‎umero to work on some of his accounts but the deal went wrong. Several efforts made by the Abuja artist - Numero to get to the blogger proved abortive as he was not picking his calls after changing his clients details.

Though, Freeman was said to have denied been responsible but his phone number was allegedly used to replace Numero recovery number and email, which points to the fact that he had a hand in it. 
‎Speaking to AlexReports the artist said 
"Freeman hacked my 3 emails, 1 Instagram page and my official twitter account so I got him arrested yesterday (Friday 10th)" . He further revealed that the dreadlocks blogger  hacked his Twitter @Numero5D Abuja Stars Instagram Page "@abujastars" and 3 emails and changed all the recovery details like recovery phones number and emails.

"He changed my twitter from @Numero5D to @trends5d and Abujastars Instagram to @trends5d. He was also denying that he did not hack the accounts but if given a laptop and in internet he will restore them in 5 minutes  " Numero said.‎
When asked if he made any revealing statement, Numero responded " Sure he confessed that he called his brother who is in the east to help him log into my account and remove his phone number while he was in police custody and investigation was still on. That means I'm even more vulnerable now because he's not the only one with access to the hacked accounts"
The Police was said to have confiscated his gadgets and also gone to his house to pick his laptop and other devices. He has been in Police custody since Friday till today as the case is said to be that of Cyber crime and threat to life.
On investigation, some persons revealed that it was not the first time issues like this had happened as they had been victims of his hard service demand especially if there is financial involvement.
