A 29-year-old Lagos big boy, Ume Ifechukwu Clinton, has been arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) for alleged fr@ud, impersonation and money laundering.

It was gathered that the suspect was arrested on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 in Isheri area of Lagos State.

EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwajaren, in a statement on Thursday, October 20, said Clinton was arrested following a news story published by an online portal: foundation for investigative journalism narrating how he defr@uded Axelle Mahieu, an educator working as a caregiver in Brussels, Belgium.

“The victim was surfing through her Facebook page in November 2021, when she saw that someone had sent her a message. The message was from Ume Ifechukwu Clinton, who introduced himself as “a friend of a friend”.

As they continued chatting in the following days, Clinton told Mahieu that he was an official of the EFCC, with a fake Identity Card and Nigerian Passport as proofs.

After several months of video calls and gaining Mathieu’s trust, Clinton allegedly proposed a cryptocurrency business to her, assuring her of huge profit and secured capital.

After convincing the Belgian, Clinton ended up defr@uding her of €45,000,” the statement reads.
