A middle aged man has been arrested for allegedly defrauding a Thai national of N30 million and $216,000 in Lagos.

The suspect, Chimereze Chinedu, allegedly defrauded the Thai national of the money under the pretense of selling thirty seven tricycles to her.

The Police Public Relation Officer (PPRO), SP Benjamin Hundeyin, in a statement yesterday said the suspect was arrested by officers of the State Criminal Investigative Department (SCID), Lagos State Police Command.

Hundeyin said the suspect expanded his fraudulent activity by forging letters of the State Criminal Investigative Department, showing that the tricycles were seized by the police and further extorted the Thai national of N30 million to purportedly secure the release of the tricycles.

He said the suspect was arrested on May 10, following weeks of diligent investigation and technical support from Interpol. He is currently in detention, as investigations continue to uncover details towards identifying and apprehending his accomplices.
