The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in Benin arrested Irabor Kennedy Osasogie for alleged fraud following a petition by Antje, a German citizen.
The victim complained to the commission that Osasogie, 21, defrauded her of €17,000.
The petitioner claimed she met him through social media after she was defrauded of €68,000 by one Michael Patrick.
Antje alleged that Osasogie offered to assist her in recovering the money but further defrauded her of €17,000.
A statement by EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren said upon arrest, the suspect said he only received €12,850.
“The suspect will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded,” Uwujaren added.
