Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force in collaboration with South Australian Police arrested one Ogenevowero Emefeke for a fraudulent scheme on an Australian national in the Federal Capital Territory.
This was made known in a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, shared on the Force's Facebook account on Monday.
The statement read in part, “Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force - National Cybercrime Center (NPF-NCCC) have successfully apprehended one Ogenevowero Emefeke, a 37-year-old resident of Guida Area of the Federal Capital Territory for pulling-off an elaborate fraudulent scheme on an Australian National and recovered the sum of sixty thousand Australian Dollars (60.000.00 AUD) from the suspect. This is coming on the heels of actionable intelligence made available by the South Australian Police Department (SAPOL).
“The suspect, in a written statement during Police interview, freely admitted to having committed the fraud and several others dating back to 2021.
"In unmasking his modus operandi, investigation reveals that the suspect and his cohorts usually adopt pseudo identities of renown International celebrities, carefully select their victims through different social media platforms, lure them into an attack popularly known as "Romance Scam", and after gaining their trust, subsequently play on their emotion to swindle them of their resources. Investigation further revealed that the victims are usually vulnerable men and women in desperate search for emotional comfort and fame.”
