facebook scamThe Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Nigeria has arrested a suspected fraudster, Obiechina Chikeluba, for allegedly swindling Kieran Oakes, a UK citizen, the sum of £54,000 (about 20 million Naira) in love scam.

Highlights:

  • Obiechina is 21 years old student of a college in Lagos
  • He used the profile of a American, Lisa Jackson to defraud Oakes
  • He collected money at various times to the tune of £54,000
  • The EFCC says he will appear in court after investigations

Details

Chikeluba, a 21-year-old student of Federal Science and Technical College Yaba, Lagos, met the victim on Facebook sometime in 2013.

The suspect, using the assumed profile of an American, Lisa Jackson, entered into a relationship with Oakes, with the pair agreeing to get married.

Endless wait for love

In the course of their relationship, ‘Jackson’ at various times collected money to the tune of £54,000 from Oakes, to enable him travel to the UK to meet her.

After an endless wait for her fiancé, it dawned on the Briton that she had been conned and consequently reported to the EFCC.

Operatives of the Commission arrested Chikeluba in a sting operation on February 24, 2015 in Lagos while attempting to collect a parcel sent to him.

The EFCC said he would appear in court as soon as investigation is concluded.
