The police in Peel Region, Southern Ontario, Canada have arrested a 32-year-old man of Nigerian descent, Adebowale Adiatu; while an arrest warrant has been issued for his compatriot, Gbemisola Akinrinade, 44. They were alleged to have fraudulently issued and sold 250 airline tickets valued in excess of $500,000.

According to investigators, between June and December 2021, the suspects claimed they were working for travel agencies based out of the United Kingdom and accessed a secure online booking portal of a major European airline.
