Two suspected fraudsters, Okechukwu Denis Mikel and Kelvin Ewuzie, are presently telling the police at the Special Fraud Unit (SF), Lagos all they knew about the $283,450 which they fraudulently collected from the account of two American citizens.
They were alleged to have jointly collected the money over a period of time under false pretence that they were going to help the unsuspecting American to help him secure a business deal in Nigeria.
Luck ran against the fraudsters when Kelvin Ewuzie attempted to outsmart his colleague in crime. Suspecting that he had been cheated, Okechukwu Denis Mikel petitioned the police that he had been swindled by his friend. Parading the two suspects before media men, the Commissioner of Police, Special Fraud Unit, Mr. Tunde Ogunsakin said during investigations, the detectives handling the case discovered that, both Ewuzie and Mikel had defrauded an American and that trouble started when Ewuzie attempted to swindle his friend. Ogunsakin said the two suspects would soon be charged to court.
