The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested one Monday Lambo Olugu Agha (alias Okoh Sunday Nnachi, James Bright Emmanuel and Cletus Odachi Mkpume) for conspiracy, impersonation and obtaining money under false pretences.
The suspect specializes in using fake names with different bank accounts to obtain money from unsuspecting Nigerians.
Agha and Engr. Chris Ezea ( still at large) are said to have hoodwinked Dr Ezema in parting with the sum of N805,000.00 for a non existing business of supplying Electrical Rings ostensibly for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.
The suspect who hails from Ukpa in Afikpo North LGA of Ebonyi State operates several accounts in different banks using different names and addresses.
With his account at Diamond Bank placed on alert, the suspect approached the bank to open a new account with the name Mkpume Odachi Cletus (he had an existing account with the bank by the name Sunday Okoh Nnachi). It was in that process that he was arrested.
Under interrogation, Agha who claimed to be a farmer and drinking joint operator was discovered to have forged utility bills, driver’s license and residential addresses.
He will soon be arraigned in court.No tags for this post.
