A suspected Internet fraudster, Abiodun Joseph, who impersonated the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on his Facebook account, and had duped two Nigerian ladies based in the United States of America of various sums of money had been arrested by the Ogun State Police command.
The bearded suspect was said to have been arrested last Wednesday 19th April at Ilese, in Ijebu North East Local Government Area.
Joseph was paraded alongside three other armed robbers and kidnappers at the state command’s headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta on Monday.
The suspect had allegedly duped the ladies to the tune of N600,000 which he had been paid through money transfer.
While parading the suspects, the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, said Joseph had been using his Facebook and Whatsapp accounts to dupe unsuspecting members of the public.
He said his men got wind of his illicit act of the 26-year-old suspect and swung into the action.
He said, “On interrogation, he owned up to the crime and confessed that he has duped some people to the tune of N600,000.”
