21-year-old Model and Influencer Arrested for Defrauding German Man Of $200,000 With Promise Of Marriage

Operatives of the Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU), Ikoyi-Lagos, have arrested a 21-year-old lady, Atuonah Cynthia Chioma, for allegedly fr@udulently converting, st£aling, and obtaining the sum of $220,000 by false pretence from a German citizen.

It was gathered that the suspect, a 2019 graduate of Economics, Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK), Awka; who claimed to be a model and businesswoman, lured the 50-year-old victim on Instagram by feigning romantic intentions towards him, thereby gaining the victims’ trust and goodwill.

The unit’s spokesperson, SP Eyitayo Johnson, in a statement on Wednesday, April 19, said: “Atuonah Chioma promised to marry the victim, invited him to Nigeria for visits on several occasions, and convinced him to relocate permanently to Nigeria to live together as husband and wife.

“In a ploy to dispel suspicion, the victim was made to meet with Atuonah Chiomas’ parents at Ikot-Abasi, Akwa Ibom State where he received their blessings to marry their daughter.

“The victim was persuaded by the suspect (Miss Atuonah Cynthia) to return to Germany to sell his house in Stuttgart and forward the proceeds of the sale, together with his pension and life savings to her domiciliary account to purchase a house in Nigeria where they will both live as husband and wife as well as to establish a joint business outfit as indicated in the bank transfer narration.

“During interrogation, the suspect admitted in her statement that the sum of Two Hundred and Twenty Thousand Dollars ($220,000USD) was transferred to her account by the victim.

“Part of the proceeds was then used to buy a 2-Bedroom Terrace apartment at Zara Estate, Ikota Villa, Lekki Phase II, while some of the funds were sent to support her mother’s business and to pay the medical bills of her father.”

Meanwhile, a 36-year-old Nigerian man, Ebuka Ozor, has been arrested in the Indian capital of New Delhi for supplying drugs.

Ebuka was arrested late Monday, April 17th 2023 based on a tip-off.
