Police arrest suspected Facebook fraudsters

The Enugu State Police Command on Thursday said it had arrested two suspected fraudsters for faking the Face book account of the State Deputy Governor, Cecilia Ezeilo.

The suspects are: Richard Onyema, 36, and Richard Amadi, 40.

The Spokesperson for the command, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, who briefed newsmen on the arrest said the suspects were arrested on Oct. 2, in Rivers State.

Amaraizu said Onyema was a native of Amokohia while Odinaka Amadi was from Mbaitoli, all in Imo.

He said the suspects specialised in using prominent persons’ profile to defraud members of the public.

“It was gathered that the suspects cloned a face book account of the Enugu State Deputy Governor, Cecilia Ezeilo.

“The suspects had used the face book account of the second citizen of Enugu State to dupe the public to the tune of N635, 000,’’ he said.

He said that the suspects were helping the police in their investigation.
