 A 21 year old student of the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos, Obiechina (surname withheld) has been arrested for allegedly swindling a United Kingdom citizen, Kieran Oakes, of the sum of £54,000 (Ghc288,000) in a romance scam.

According to reports by The Punch, The Head of Media and Publicity of the the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission( EFCC), Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, said in a statement on Thursday that Obiechina met his victim on Facebook in 2013 and started an affair with her by claiming to be an American business man, Lisa Jackson.

Uwujaren said the fake Jackson and his unsuspecting victim later agreed to get married.

According to him, the suspected scammer collected money on several occasions from the suspect adding up to £54,000(Ghc288,000)  ostensibly to travel to the UK to meet his ‘lover.’

He said Oakes was forced to petition the EFCC after a seemingly endless wait for her lover when she realised that she had been swindled.

Operatives of the Commission arrested Chikeluba in a sting operation on February 24, 2015 in Lagos while attempting to collect a parcel sent to him.

He will appear in court as soon as investigation is concluded
