The arrest of the suspect was confirmed by Haruna Mohammed, the spokesperson of the Anambra State Police Command who also revealed that the suspect bore three different names, Eugene Chimeze Ohamadike, Henry Eze, and Ifeanyi Obiora to deceive his victims.

He said, “He is the brain behind series of dastardly acts on social media precisely Facebook where he posed as an employee of an oil company in Port Harcourt or a senior officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps.

“Some of the victims fell into his trap under the illusion that they have met an opulent young man who they will spend their lives with.’’
