Fr@udsters arrested for abd¥cting their colleague after he gave them N2k out of the N26m they got from a ‘client’
Operatives of Ogun State Police Command have arrested four suspected internet fr@udsters for allegedly abd¥cting their colleague over sharing of proceeds from their fr@ud business.
The suspects: Agbe Simeon, Messiah Nicky, Oladapo Dolapo and Yetunde Shonola, were arrested at Orile imo village in Obafemi Owode LGA of the state.
The command’s spokesperson, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement said police operatives at Owode Egba divisional headquarters had received information that one Haruna Usman, who had been abd¥cted since Thursday, December 22, 2022 is being held ho§tage somewhere in Orile Imo.
Adding that upon the information, officers stormed the area, where four amongst the abd¥ctors were apprehended while two others escaped.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that the victim and the suspects belong to an internet fr@udster syndicate, and that they recently swindled somebody whose identity is not yet known of sum of N26,437,950, but the victim only gave the sum of N2,200 to his other colleagues, claiming that the money has not been paid completely by their client.
This infuriated his colleagues who then lured him to an herbalist home at Orile Imo and held him ho§tage there since Thursday with thre@t to k#ll him there if he refused to give them their complete share.
But while they were there, information got to the police who moved in, rescued the victim and apprehended four amongst the abd¥ctors, while others escaped,” he said.
