Gabriel was arrested alongside 32 others on May 2, 2023 at the Iyana Ipaja axis of Lagos for their alleged involvement in computer-related fraud.

The anti-graft agency noted that their arrest came following credible intelligence received by the Commission on the activities of some young boys involved in computer-related fraud.
