The National Cybercrime Centre of the Nigeria Police Force, acting on credible intelligence, has arrested three suspects in connection with charges of conspiracy, identity theft, and romance scam.

This was made known in a statement by the Force Spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, shared on the Force X account on Friday.

The statement disclosed that the suspects, Njoku Kingsley, 35, Chigozie Okorie, 34, and Jideofor Sejus, 35, were arrested after investigations showed their involvement in a range of deceptive practices, perpetrated by impersonating an individual named Anthony James.

Under this false identity, they individually targeted victims, engaging in romance scams to defraud them of their hard-earned resources.

The suspects, in voluntary written statements, admitted their roles in the criminal conspiracy.

The statement added: “Consequently, members of the cyber community as a borderless state are enjoined to exercise great restraint or totally shy away from establishing resource-exchanging relationships in the social media space.

“The suspects will be charged in court upon the conclusion of the investigation.”
