Operatives of the Kaduna Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have arrested one Dogara Liman for offences bordering on obtaining money by false pretenses.
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.
All efforts by the victim to retrieve the money failed, according to the statement.
“The suspect will soon be charged to court,” Mr Uwujaren concluded.
