Fake Nollywood star in EFCC Net over $7,000 romance scam

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos Zonal office, has arrested one, Ezekiel Sunday Emmanuel, for allegedly defrauding an American national, Collins Meresha, to the tune of $7,000 USD (Seven Thousand Dollars).

Emmanuel, who presents himself as Frederick Nnaemeka Leonard, a Nollywood actor, was arrested on October 8, 2020, by officers of the Commission, following a report by the Chief Security Officer of Federal Airports Authority, FAAN, who caught him while engaging in a heated argument with Meresha on October 6, 2020.

It turned out that Meresha was invited to Nigeria by the suspect under the guise that he was Leonard, whom she had been dating online.
She further alleged that she was, however, accosted on arrival at the airport by the suspect, whom she described as a “totally different person” from the Nollywood actor. The suspect will soon be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
