Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have arrested an undergraduate, Nnamdi Henry Chimezulem a.k.a. Dessey Marvel, for defrauding his victims a sum of N850,000 through a phony investment  scheme.

A statement on Wednesday by the EFCCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said the suspect was arrested on December 3, at Omuoda Lane,  Aluu,  Port Harcourt,  Rivers State, following a petition alleging his fraudulent dealings through his firm: Skyworld Investment Limited.

One of Chimezulem’s victims:  Ukoro Blessing alleged that, sometimes in July 2020, he approached her with an online foreign exchange business with an assurance of fifty percent (50%) returns on investment within two (2) weeks.

This offer, Blessing said, made many unsuspecting members of the public invest in Chimezulem’s platform and got defrauded. A total sum of N850,000 has so far been traced to him.

The EFCC said t suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
