According to the EFCC, the suspects who resided at the singer’s home referred to Skales as their mentor.
The agency said, “The suspects: Udemba Chukwuemeka (a.k.a Jody) and Jamal Jamiu Onasola (a.k.a. Jamal) were arrested at the residence of a musician: John Njeng Njeng (a.k.a Skales). The two suspects, suspected of being involved in a dating scam, described Njeng as their “mentor”. While Chukwuemeka has been in Njeng’s residence for two years, Onasola has only stayed there for few months.”
According to the commission, the two individuals will be charged in court as soon as the investigations are finished.
The musician had previously accused EFCC investigators of bursting into his home in the early morning hours and frightening his family, however including his daughter, who is only six months old. Especially for hurting his producer’s leg, Skales called them out on Twitter.
Skales continued to rant however on social media after making his accusation, posting numerous videos as proof. The EFCC agents could be seen in the recordings entering the residence and other houses in the compound. They were equipped with hammers and weapons, as the singer had claimed.
The commission emphasized that they raided his compound based on the information they had been given in response.
In response to Skales’ claims that EFCC operatives broke into his home early on a day and terrified his family, including his daughter, who is six months old, this statement has been made.

Skales persisted in venting his annoyance on social media, sharing numerous videos as proof.
These videos showed EFCC agents walking into the compound’s houses and residence. They had guns and hammers, as Skales had claimed.
The EFCC responded by emphasizing that their decisions were made in reaction to the facts they had been given.
