Four suspected internet fraudsters will soon be arraigned in court by the Benin Zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. The suspects, Shiko Romeo, Bobby Edigiu, Henry Nisike and Emmanuel Ayo were arrested recently by officers of the Nigeria Police on suspicion of being involved in internet fraud.
Upon handing the suspects over to the EFCC, operatives of the Commission commenced investigations including analysis of documents retrieved from the laptop computer recovered from them. The suspects have confessed to their involvement in internet fraud using fake identification on Facebook in their attempt to defraud unsuspecting victims especially European and American women.
According to EFCC, Romeo, who claims to be a student of National Open University, NOUN, confessed that he scammed the duo of K. Zamaripas and Susan various sums of money in a romantic relationship using the name John Culfer who lives in New Jersey, USA.
The suspects will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.
