â€œHe reeled out the benefits attached to the employment and I began to source for the money. At the end of the day I got the N400,000 and sent to him in Dubai through his Access Bank account
Arrested Vanguard gathered that it took the RRS four months before the suspect could be tracked down, as he reportedly travelled to Dubai and also changed his telephone number on arriving Nigeria.
During interrogation, the suspect admitted to have collected the money from the victim, but said that he spent the money when efforts to secure the visa for him failed.
He said: â€œI canâ€™t deny the fact that I collected N400,000 from him. I actually tried to secure the visa for him but all my efforts were in vain. And I started spending the money gradually till I spent it all.â€
Four other victims who alleged to have paid Chidebere N400,000 each for UAE visa also visited RRS office in Alausa, when they got wind of his arrest.
Confirming the arrest, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmus, said that the suspect had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba, for further investigation
