The Ogun State Police order has captured a lady for purportedly swindling a Christian religious association to the aggregate of N100m.
The suspect, 39-year-old I wuagwu Onyinyechi was captured under the affectation of helping the association to raise finance for its philanthropy program
Addressing newsmen on Sunday, Police representative, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the woman was captured after a request composed by a Lagos-based legal advisor of the association, Godswill Ojakovo , to the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, in which he griped that his customer was swindled by the suspect through a demonstration of imitation.
As indicated by Oyeyemi, the suspect professed to have a Local Purchase Order (LPO) from a property organization and spoke to the association to help finance the LPO, ensuing whereupon a whole of N33.118m was moved into to her financial balance.
He said while the association was anticipating the reimbursement of the advance, the suspect accompanied another two LPOs she professed to have from a Catholic Hospital, Iju and a non-public school in Ikorodu, Lagos State, whereupon another entirety of N77m was given to her, in the wake of persuading the association with applicable archives and verifications to back her cases.
In any case, when the suspect got the last installment in September 2018, she was mysteriously gone, provoking the association to make request about the LPOs she submitted before they found it was altogether fashioned.
“Upon the appeal, the Commissioner of Police Ogun State, Ahmed Iliyasu, guided his checking group to pursue the suspect and convey her to book. The group in fact followed the suspect and got her captured on January 21, 2019.
“On cross examination, the suspect admitted to the wrongdoing by conceding that the LPOs introduced by her were manufactured and a portion of the organizations she professed to be the proprietors of the LPOs, were made up by her.
“In the interim, the CP has guided the checking group to charge the suspect in court when the examinations are finished up,”
DSP Oyeyemi expressed.
