Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested one Iwuchukwu Martin Uche for obtaining money under false pretence to the tune of $145, 000.
Uche, who claimed to be a military officer working for the North Atlantic Treaty organisation, NATO, in Kabul, Afghanistan, allegedly collected the money from his
victim, H.Uyen, a Viatnamese woman, after promising to marry her.
The suspect, who also claimed to be a property agent operating in Nigeria and Ghana, allegedly told the victim that he needed the money to procure some
documents for the planned wedding.
The money was allegedly wired to the suspect’s Diamond Bank account number: 0028998256.
A statement by the Spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, said the suspect would soon be charged to court.
