Few Days after the death of one of their Victim, EFCC Seeks Extradition Of Three Brothers, To The U.S. Over Child Exploitation, Pornography.

The suspects are Samuel Ogoshi, 22; Samson Ogoshi, 20; and Ezekiel Ejehem Robert, 19. The suspects are said to be residing in Lagos, Nigeria.

The justice department said DeMay was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on March 25, 2022.

The teenager’s death was said to have prompted an investigation by the Marquette County Sheriff’s Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which culminated in the unsealing of the indictment against the three suspects.

In the statement, the US said the three men allegedly bought hacked social media accounts and used the accounts to pose as young women to lure teenage and young adult males into sexual chats.

These pictures were then used in blackmailing the victims, thereby forcing them into making huge financial payments.

Consequently, Samuel Ogoshi is charged with segxwal exploitation and attempted segxwal exploitation of minors that resulted in the death of one Jordan DeMay, an offence that carries a maximum penalty of life in prison and a statutory mandatory minimum of 30 years in prison.

The trio are charged with conspiracy to segxwally exploit minors by causing them to produce child pornographic images that they used to blackmail them.

They are further charged with conspiracy to distribute child pornography, which borders on sending images to minors, their families and friends, as well as conspiracy to commit stalking through the Internet. Both offences carry a minimum of five years and maximum 20 years imprisonment.

While the Ogoshis were arrested sometime in February, 2023 around the Ojo axis of Lagos, Ezekiel was picked up in Nasarawa by operatives of the EFCC.
