EFCC Arrests 21-year-old For Alleged €17,000 Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has said that the operatives of its Benin Zonal Command arrested a 21-year-old man identified as Irabor Kennedy Osasogie for an alleged fraud.

The commission in a statement on Friday stated that Osasogie was arrested following a petition by one Antje, a German female national who complained that the suspect defrauded her of €17,000.

According to EFCC, the petitioner claimed that she met Osasogie through social media after she was defrauded of €68,000 by another fraudster identified as Michael Patrick.
