Irabor Kennedy Osasogie has been detained by agents from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC) Benin Zonal Command on suspicion of fraud.
The 21-years old was arrested recently by the Commission following a petition by one Antje, a German citizen, complaining that the suspect defrauded her of €17,000.
The petitioner claimed that she met Osasogie through social media after she was defrauded of €68,000 by one Michael Patrick. She alleged that Osasogie offered to assist her in recovering the money but further defrauded her of €17,000.
Upon arrest, the suspect claimed he only received €12,850 from the petitioner.
The suspect will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
