ABU Graduate Arrested for Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Lagos Zonal office, has arrested a 32-year-old suspected fraudster, Loretta Okonkwo, for gaining money under false pretense. This was disclosed in a statement released by the commission on Thursday through its verified social media handle.

Okonkwo, a graduate of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna State, was arrested on July 19, 2019, in Lagos, following a petition received by the Commission about her fraudulent activities.

The statement further says, “the complainant alleged that he invested in Recharge and Make Money Limited, a company belonging to the suspect. The petitioner further alleged that the suspect, however, reneged on her promise to offer him a percentage of the proceeds on his investment and also refused to refund him.”

The statement finally shows that the suspect will soon be arraigned in court.
