The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested a suspected fraudster, Obiechina Chikeluba for allegedly swindling Kieran Oakes, a UK citizen, the sum of £54,000 (equivalent of N20m) in love scam.

Chikeluba, a 21-year-old student of Federal College of Science and Technical 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.
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 petitioned 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.

He will appear in court as soon as investigation is concluded.

I see people hailing or congratulating a criminal openly. That simply means they would do the same thing if given the opportunity.
Wonder where our morals have gone. God help Nigeria!
