Operatives of the Benin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have arrested one Irabor Kennedy Osasogie for alleged fraud.
The 21-year-old was arrested recently by the Commission following a petition by one Antje, a German citizen.
The German citizen complained 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.
Antje 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, the EFCC said in a statement.
