The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Gombe Zonal Office has arrested a student by name, Eze Mavus Ugochukwu for posing as a lieutenant in the Nigerian Army to defraud the public.

EFCC arrested Ugochukwu, a student of Computer Science, Bauchi State Polytechnic who paraded himself as a soldier while carrying out fraudulent activities.

EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren in a statement on Monday stated that Ugochukwu an indigene of Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State was arrested.

Ugochukwu was arrested by the officers of 33 Artillery Brigade of the Nigerian Army, Shadawanka Barracks, Bauchi State and handed over to the Gombe Zonal Office of the EFCC for further investigation, Lagisdi reports.

The suspect arrested was as a result of a complaint lodged by Dorcas Oni stating that the suspect presented himself as a Lieutenant in the Nigerian Army, promising to secure a spot for her son in the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) and she in turn made a transfer of N400,000.00 to his account.

During EFCC’s investigation, findings reveals that the suspect had defrauded other victims to the sum of N1,455,000.00 using the same military bait.

  13. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Superb work!|

  14. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.|
