On March 30, 2016, Ndubuisi received an e-mail, presumably from Okeke, that he should pay N500,000 into an account with the United Bank for Africa belonging to Osasunmese, with a threat that if he did not, he would sue him to court for the money he was owing him.

Ndubuisi he obliged without hesitation.

He received another mail on the second day with same threat to pay another N750,000 to the same account.

He obliged again.

On April 4, 2016, Ndubuisi received a call from one Chief Osifo asking him to check his mail box for an instruction.

At this Juncture, he sensed something was amiss.

Hence he called his uncle to confirm if he actually sent the mail.

But to his chagrin, the uncle said he never sent any mail to him.

The matter was reported to the office of the Assistant Inspector General of Police for investigation.

During the course of investigation, the unit, in collaboration with the bank officials, was able to track down and arrest the suspect in Benin, Edo State.

The suspect has confessed to the crime.

He belongs to a three-man internet fraudster gang.

Recovered from the suspect were a laptop, ATM cards for different banks belonging to one Blessedson Ehrahon.

The suspect is suspected to bear same name.

He will soon appear in court.

In addition, in continuation of the investigation in the case of armed robbery at Tomez Group Limited at Amuwo Odofin, Lagos State, which occurred on August 8, 2016, one Benjamin Udoh connected to the case has been arrested through intelligence by the Anti Kidnapping Unit of Zone 2 Command, Lagos.

The suspect has confessed to the crime.

Udoh’s arrest has culminated into the recovery of one Mitsubishi Fuso Truck with registration number GGE 537 XP, property of the aforementioned company.

It was stolen at the scene of crime.

The suspect has since been charged to court.

The Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 2 Command, Lagos, Abdulmajid Ali, has reiterated his zero tolerance for crimes and social vices within the zone.

Ali has directed the Officer-in-Charge of the Anti Kidnapping Unit of the Zone to ensure the other members of these gangs are apprehended without delay.

  1. How gullible? It didn’t dawn on you to call your uncle first before sending money to an unknown person?


  2. But why this man named Mr Iloka Ndubuisi, did not call his uncle Dr J. Okeke, when he received first instruction, don’t he know how people suffer here in abroad to earn a living?


  3. Kudos to our police
