“He would send friend requests to potential targets and as soon as someone walked into his trap, Kaypirin would send expensive gifts as a token of friendship.

“The accused would later make calls to the victim posing as customs officers and duped them by making them pay ‘customs fees’ for the release of the gifts stuck at airports.

“In some cases, he also proposed to their victims for marriage and claimed that he was stranded at an airport and needed money,” he added.

Police in India got wind of the operations of the Nigerian after one of his female victims who lost Rs 35 lakh (N19million) to his scam submitted a formal complaint.

Police booked Kaypirin under IPC Section 420 (cheating) and relevant sections of the IT Act.

Udkwe went to India in 2013 on a one-month medical visa.

His stay in the country expired in 2017 but he remained and carried out his fraudulent activities on social media.
