Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested Aniji Shedrack Chidubem, the musician better known as Sanij-D, for allegedly defrauding Susan Mclean, a Briton, the sum of £9,300.00.
In a statement on Monday, the anti-graft agency said the suspect was also alleged to have defrauded Diana Rosado Gonzalax, who is an American, the sum of $2,000.00.
Chidubem, who was arrested in Abuja, will be arraigned in court after investigations.
“He was arrested in the Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja,
based on credible intelligence on the activities of a syndicate of internet fraudsters,” the statement reads.
“Chidubem allegedly impersonated one Christopher Rossi, a marine engineer that fixes boats and pipelines in Singapore.
“He was using Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp applications, with foreign phone numbers, as his fraudulent means of perpetrating and defrauding his victims.
“He will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.”
Last week, the anti-graft agency arrested two suspected internet fraudsters at the residence of Skales, the singer.
This was after Skales had called out the commission for raiding his home.
The singer claimed officials of the EFCC came to his house with weapons, including guns, and damaged his property.
He also alleged that they broke into his home while he and his six-month-old daughter were fast asleep, causing him to have a panic attack.
