One Abraham Adeniji, who allegedly defrauded a Chinese national and businesswoman, Gao Shu Quin, in the sum of N82.8m has been arrested by the Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, stated this in a statement issued on Monday.
Uwujaren, who did not say when Adeniji was arrested, noted that the suspect was picked up for allegedly obtaining goods under false pretence and diversion of funds to the tune of N82.8m
He added that the suspect was arrested following a petition received by the commission from Gao Shu Quin.
According to the EFCC image maker, the petitioner alleged that she met the suspect sometime in 2017, while doing her legitimate business.
He said, “She further alleged that the suspect deceived her into supplying him containers of textiles materials, believing he would remit the proceeds upon sale of the textile materials.
“However, the suspect allegedly diverted the proceeds for personal use after sale.”
The suspect, he mentioned, will soon be charged to court as soon as the investigation is completed.
