Two Nigerian nationals Olatunji Samson Abdul and Adedayo Quandri have been arrested after they cloned a law firm’s email accounts and stole over R11m from clients.

Abdul was sentenced to eight years behind bars, while Quandri was sentenced to seven years.

The duo reportedly lived a lavish lifestyle, renting a Waterfall Estate property for R55 000 per month and a Bentley for R50 000.

Police reportedly recovered just R700 000 in cash stashed in a closet at their home in Waterfall Estate.

They also recovered alcohol worth R80 000 during the arrest of the Nigerians, who both pleaded guilty to 24 charges of theft and fraud.

Police said they also seized expensive and sealed clothing items from Italian brands, including Prada and Gucci upon their arrest.
