The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Lagos Zonal office, has arrested a 32-year-old suspected fraudster, Loretta Okonkwo, for obtaining money under false pretense.
Okonkwo, a graduate of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna State, was arrested on July 19, 2019 in Lagos, following a petition received by the Commission about her fraudulent activities. The complainant alleged that he invested in Recharge and Make Money Limited, a company belonging to the suspect.
The petitioner further alleged that the suspect, however, reneged on her promise to offer him a percentage of the proceeds on his investment and also refused to refund him.
The suspect will soon be arraigned in court.
