ALLEGED HACKER: Abiodun David John
A NIGERIAN-born man has been arrested on suspicion of trying to hack into the bank account of a murdered British man.
It is claimed that Abiodun David John, 32, from Salford in Greater Manchester, tried to access the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and HSBC accounts belonging to Saad Al-Hill, 50, who was found shot dead with his 47-year-old wife, and 74-year-old mother-in-law in the French Alps on September 5.
Al-Hill's eight-year-old daughter was taken to hospital with gun shot wounds while his four-years was found alive and unhurt under her mother's body eight hours after the shooting.
Police officers raided John’s flat in October, where they discovered several mobile phones.
He was subsequently arrested and his due to return to the police station today (November 13)
John, who describes himself as a self-employed field product consultant protests his innocence and told the Manchester Evening News “I believe that people have been tapping into my phone and accessing my internet.
When the police came into my house I did not know what they were talking about. They were talking about a dead man and said that I did it- took some money from a dead man’s account.
I don’t know where this whole thing has come from” he said
A Surrey Police spokeswoman told The Voice : “A 32-year-old man from the Greater Manchester area was arrested in October in connection with an ongoing fraud investigation being carried out by Surrey Police. He was released on bail until 13 November pending further enquiries.
The arrested man is due back on bail later today. An update will be issued when available.”
