EFCC arrests Delta Chief for Internet fraud, recovers palatable cars, house

By Admin

Operatives of the EFCC, Benin Zonal Office on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 arrested a suspected internet fraud kingpin, Akegor Godbless Omamuyorwi at his palatial home in Ughelli, Delta State.

The arrest of the 34-year-old internet fraud kingpin, who is a chief in Agbaro community was triggered by a petition from a bank following complain by one Canadian resident alleging that she had transferred the sum of 390,950.34 Canadian dollar to two different accounts of the bank based on scam.

Preliminary investigations showed that Omamuyorvi was involved in romance scam and presented himself as Mr Sheri Hunt, an oil worker in Milan, Italy to his victim.

He hoodwinked his ‘lover’ victim with the impression that he was sending her a package but demanded for money under the pretext of paying medical bills, legal fee and diplomatic fees.

To further give credence to his fraudulent activities in order to defraud his victim, he sent several emails purportedly from the Canadian Ambassador to Italy and the  bank, persuading his victim to accede to his request.

The Commission has sealed his mansion in Ughelli and recovered two high-end cars, with personalised plate numbers from him.

Already, he has made useful statements and will be arraigned in court as soon as investigations are completed.
