The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 24-year-old man, Ehioboh Lucky, for allegedly impersonating business mogul, Dr. Mike Adenuga.
The suspect, according to a statement by the command’s spokesman, Mr. Abimbola Oyeyemi, in Abeokuta yesterday operated a facebook account with the name and picture of Adenuga, which he has been using to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
Lucky, who hails from Edo State, had defrauded one Abiola Olalekan Ogunseye, of the sum of N1,028,770. His arrest followed a complaint lodged to the police by Ogunseye.
Oyeyemi said: “One of Lucky’s victims, Abiola Olalekan Ogunseye, came in contact with him on facebook where he promised to get employment for him at Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC), but Lucky demanded the sum of N1.5 million from Ogunseye as “settlement” fee for ‘some members of management board of the NNPC who will influence his appointment.’
“After weeks of investigation, the suspect was apprehended on Monday, November 6. Recovered from him were one Iphone 6, one dell laptop, eight different SIM cards, five different ATM cards and one international passport.”
Oyeyemi disclosed that the suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
