The gallant operatives of the Nigerian Police Force, have apprehended a fake visa agent for allegedly defrauding his Facebook friend of almost a million Naira.
A fake visa agent identified as Oladele Oyadokun, who allegedly defrauded his Facebook friend of N900,000, has been apprehended by the Police.
According to a report by PUNCH Metro, Oyadokun allegedly collected N600,000 from one Adenike Eniola to boost his business.
It was gathered that Eniola and Oyadokun met on Facebook and became friends when he (Oyadokun) portrayed himself as a visa agent and an engineer working with a company in Dubai.
Oyadokun reportedly complained to Eniola about having issues with his visa business and needed N600,000 to revive the business. Eniola allegedly transferred the said sum to the account number provided by Oyadokun.
It was gathered that Eniola allegedly introduced a man, Arogundade Ishola, to Oyadokun to help him secure a working visa to Dubai, and a sum of N300,000 was negotiated for the processing and the visa was to be ready six weeks after payment.
It was learnt further that the money was transferred to Oyadokun on December 22, 2017, and after six weeks, Oyadokun claimed that though the visa was ready, there was a delay in the process and further claimed that Arogundade’s flight had been booked for March 10, 2018.
Oyadokun was said to have blocked his contacts and closed down his Facebook account since March 6, 2018.
Eniola, however, reported the case at the Alapere Police Station and the police discovered that Oyadokun was operating from Oyo State. He was subsequently arrested through some of his friends that he had defrauded in the past.
Oyadokun was on Thursday arraigned before an Ogudu Magistrates’ Court on two counts of fraud and obtaining money under false pretences, which he pleaded not guilty to.
The police prosecutor, Lucky Ihiehie, told the court that Oyadokun committed the offences sometime between November 2017 and March 2018 in Ikosi-Ketu.
He added that the offences contravened Sections 280 (1), (a), and 314 (1), (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The magistrate, Mrs E. Ikubehinje, admitted Oyadokun to bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties who must be taxpayers with evidence of payment of utility bills.
The case was adjourned till August 22.
