A distressed woman loses N7.5m to fraudsters while seeking for spiritual assistant
The Lagos State Police Command has verified the arrest of two alleged scammers for defrauding an unidentified woman out of N7.5m in the state’s Ikorodu region.
SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the state Police Public Relations Officer, claimed in a tweet on Sunday that the suspects committed the crime under the pretence of offering spiritual assistance to the victim.
He explained that the suspects were on the brink of collecting another tranch of funds from the victim when the police arrested them.
Hundeyin wrote, “In Ikorodu, these two duped a woman to the tune of N7.5m under the guise of providing ‘spiritual help’. She realised the fraud and approached the police. They were apprehended when they arranged to get another batch of funds from her. Investigation is ongoing.”
