The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has detained a singer named Aniji Shedrack Chidubem (a.k.a. Sanij-D) for allegedly scamming a British woman named Susan Mclean.
Miss Mclean was reportedly scammed of £9,300.00 by the performer.
The suspect, a Lagos-based musician, was also accused of defrauding an American, Diana Rosado Gonzalax, of $2,000.00 (Two Thousand American Dollars).
He was apprehended in the Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Abuja based on solid intelligence about the operations of an internet fraud syndicate.
According to the EFCC, the singer, known for hits like as Profesy and Katalina, reportedly impersonated Christopher Rossi, a marine engineer in Singapore who repairs boats and pipes.
”He used Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp applications with foreign phone numbers as his fraudulent means of perpetrating and defrauding his victims,” the EFCC revealed.
“He will be arranged before court as soon as investigations are concluded” the anti-graft agency said.
