Blogger Arrested In Lagos For Defrauding Uk-based Activist Of Millions - 4 years ago
Anyone can commit a crime; either a pastor, banker, student or blogger. It’s not about their profession or calling, it’s about an individual’s ability to overcome greed. A Nigerian blogger, Apeh Peterhot has been arrested by the Nigerian Police in Lagos. The Benue born Blogger had allegedly opened a facebook pseudo account in the name of Queen Ann Ochoga and used it to defraud Mr. Philip Agbese, to the tune of N2.2m. An innocent pregnant woman, Ann Johnson, was implicated in the said fraud, as the blogger cunningly used her bank account details, under the pretence that he had issues with his BVN. Luck, however, ran out of him, when the pregnant woman turned herself in at the police station and made confessional statement. The culprit, who has been on the run for days, was arrested Tuesday afternoon, following a coordinated operation of civilians and undercover policemen, following a tip off. He is currently being held at Idimu Police Station, Area M, Alimoso Division of Lagos command, pending a signal from the FCT command, where the matter is being handled.
