The EFCC’S Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

The spokesman revealed that the suspect had allegedly obtained the sum of N5million from a victim on the pretext of financing a contract purportedly awarded to him by the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, through TETFund sometime in March, 2014.

According to Mr Uwujaren, the suspect then lured his victim with a promise of N1.5million return on the investment, but once the funds were transferred into his account, the money was diverted to offset a loan.
