A convicted internet fraudster has been placed under investigation in Nigeria for allegedly masterminding a "mega scam" from a maximum-security prison worth at least $1m (£773,000).


Anti-corruption officials said Hope Olusegun Aroke used a "network of accomplices" for the fraud.


He was arrested in 2012 and has been serving a 24-year sentence at the Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison.
