It was gathered that the Ibadan Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested one Obohor John Damilola for Internet fraud.
Obohor, a 26-year-old student of Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, fleeces unsuspecting victims on military dating sites while posing as Nigeria-based US Army Officer by the name Sergeant Frank Mcghee.
At the point of arrest, EFCC operatives recovered one voter’s card and a debit card bearing Obohor John Damilola from him.
The Commission got wind of his fraudulent activities through series of intelligence reports on his suspicious transactions in one of the branches of an old generation bank in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, through which he received about N7,453,799 from victims.
The victims include one L. D Marte, who lost N6,216,732 to the suspect.
Others are P. Martinez, N672,887; E. Rosales, N30,065.00; and R. Rosario, N534,115.
Obohor, who confessed to the crime, claimed he was forced to embrace the scam to raise money to finance his education.
He will be arraigned in court as soon as investigation is completed.
