The Lagos zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a 32-year-old suspected fraudster, Loretta Okonkwo, for obtaining money under false pretense.
The anti-graft agency said in a statement posted on its official Facebook page, that Okonkwo, a graduate of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria in Kaduna state, was arrested on July 19, 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 would soon be arraigned in court.
