The Uttar Pradesh Police have arrested a 38-year-old Nigerian man on the charge of defrauding at least 300 women out of crores of rupees on the pretext of marriage, officials confirmed on Friday, May 27.

The accused identified as Garuba Galumje allegedly befriended women through social media and matrimonial websites, where he introduced himself as a non-resident Indian (NRI) settled in Canada.

Galumje, who was staying in the Kishan Garh area of South Delhi, was arrested by officials of the cyber crime police station in Noida, Uttar Pradesh.

"The accused has been arrested in connection with a complaint from a woman who lives in Meerut district of UP. He claimed that she had registered herself on Jeevansathi website for marriage. A man approached her through the website and introduced himself as Indo-Canadian NRI Sanjay Singh," said inspector Reeta Yadav, in-charge of the Noida cyber crime police station.

"The man eventually gained her confidence and made emotional appeals as he tricked her into transferring Rs 60 lakh in multiple instalments into his various bank accounts before she realised the fraud,"
Yadav told reporters.

When the matter was brought to police, an investigation was taken up and culprit tracked down to be operating from Delhi and arrested, said the inspector, who led the cyber police team.

"During questioning, we came across multiple similar cases involving Garuba. There are over 300 women who he had targeted through various popular websites and cheated of crores. On social media and matrimonial websites, he used profile pictures of smart-looking men and not his own in order to dupe women," Yadav said.

According to police, Garuba had first come to India in February 2019 on a six-month visa in connection with a business related to human hair and readymade garments.

He once again came to India on March 18 on a medical visa till May 22 but had over-stayed while relocating himself several times during the period.

"Garuba has been transferring the fraud money to his family members in Nigeria through international money exchange services," police added.

During the arrest, police recovered a passport, seven mobile phones, 15 photocopies of documents, which included forged letters in the names of Bank of Thailand, National Bank of Dubai, Interpol, US Department of State and FBI, officials said.

An FIR has been lodged against the accused under Indian Penal Code 406 (criminal breach of trust), 419 (cheating by impersonation) and Sections 420 (cheating), and under provisions of the Information Technology Act.
