Most wanted mortgage fraudster arrested

Solicitor Ajayi Seun, 45, who was charged for fraud offences earlier this year, was arrested last Thursday the 29 September and appeared at Ipswich Crown Court the following day.

He was charged for breaching his bail conditions and was subsequently remanded in custody awaiting trial.

He is accused of conning mortgage lenders and banks out of around £12 million between 2004 and 2009, having already been charged with conspiracy to money launder. He had failed to report to bail and police were keen to trace him.

Seun, who was wanted by Suffolk Police, was one of ten individuals being sought as part of the campaign for alleged fraud offences that totalled over £200m.

Deputy chief executive for Crimestoppers, Dave Cording, said: “To have a 50% success rate in such a short space of time is a clear indication of the trust the public has in Crimestoppers and our determination to bring these individuals to justice.

“It is only a matter of time before the remaining five are caught, so my advice to them would be to hand themselves in, simply because there is nowhere to hide.

"I urge anyone who hasn’t yet visited our most wanted website to take a look and contact us anonymously if you have any information on the remaining individuals that are still on the loose.”
