The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a chief of Agbaro community, Akegor Godbless Omamuyorwi, for alleged fraud.
The anti-graft agency said the suspected fraudster was arrested on Wednesday, October 9, at his home in Ughelli, Delta state.
The EFCC said the arrest was made following a petition filed by the bank used by the suspect after a complaint by a Canadian resident who claimed she transferred 390,950.34 Canadian dollar to two different accounts. She made the complaint after she realised that it was based on fraud.
The EFCC said the chief will be arraigned in court as soon as investigation is complete.
Meanwhile, the EFCC arrested five undergraduates and 12 others for alleged internet fraud.
