Nigerian Yahoo boy arrested after reporting his ‘apprentice’ to the police for cheating of fr*ud proceeds in India
A Nigerian man who walked into a police station with a “cheating” complaint in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly, India, has been arrested after it was discovered that he had been staying in India without a valid visa since 2011.
The suspect Robert Otujeme, was arrested on Wednesday night, August 25, and is now being interrogated by intelligence agencies, The Times of India reports.
According to the police, Otujeme had allegedly transferred “duped money” into the bank accounts of four Bareilly residents and was in the city to meet them as they had “cheated” him.
Upon questioning the Nigerian, the cops realised that he was involved in an alleged cyber fr*ud worth Rs 80 lakh. He was accused of misusing the bank accounts of several individuals by “transferring the money duped from others and sharing 20% with the real account holder.”
“Robert Otujeme, a resident of Lagos city in Nigeria had approached the cops at Faridpur police station on Wednesday to lodge a complaint against one Harpal, a city resident, for cheating. We found that he was without a passport and he was restless. Suspecting foul play, cops started questioning him.
Upon investigation, we unearthed a larger racket. Harpal’s actual name is Mehandi Hasan and he had opened bank accounts on fake ID proofs. There were transactions of over Rs 80 lakh in the four accounts and the money was transferred from other accounts in the country.
