EFCC Captures Notorious Fraudster In Abuja



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Friday, July 19, 2013 arrested Dr. Princewell Arinze Chukwueze, an alleged serial fraudster, over a $92,000(Ninety-Two Thousand United States Dollars) scam.

Chukwueze was arrested in Abuja by operatives of the EFCC following a two month frantic manhunt for him. His arrest followed an allegation of fraudulent transactions involving him and a notable Bureau de change operator in Lagos on May 10, 2013.

Specifically, Chukwueze fraudulently introduced himself as Aboki J. Brown, a Director of African Development Bank based in Cote D’ Ívoire to the Bureau de change operator at Sura Shopping Complex, Sandgrouse, Lagos and duped him of $92,000.

He was also alleged to have defrauded several bureau de change operators in Lagos and Abuja using different gimmicks. One of his victims, a lady who would not want to be named, said Chukwueze duped her firm of $110,000(One Hundred and Ten Thousand United States Dollars).

Items recovered from him included 21 different telephone handsets, complimentary cards of African Development Bank bearing Aboki J. Brown, fake $15,000 (Fifteen Thousand United States Dollar notes); different cheque books of different banks among others. Chukwueze will soon be charged to court.
