August 23, 2014 – Pictures: Fraudster Arrested At Diamond Bank In Ojodu Lagos After Duping Chinese Man

A suspected fraudster that impersonated Barrister Wilson Amarachi, Secretary to Minister of Finance and Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has been arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

John Nze Madu was arrested at Diamond Bank, Ojodu branch, Lagos, where he went to make withdrawals with an ATM card.

Investigation showed that Madu defrauded Wu Qingzhu, a Chinese national, of the sum of $5380 when he allegedly posed as Barrister Wilson Amarachi and deceived the Chinese into believing that he had outstanding payments to collect for contracts executed for the Nigerian government.

This he achieved by presenting the Chinese with fake documents from ranking Nigerian officials. He allegedly used different email addresses, two documents purportedly from Daily Sun Newspaper, an official gazette purportedly signed by the President Goodluck Jonathan and Senate President, David Mark and an international passport data page purportedly belonging to Bar Amarachi.

Madu contacted Qingzhu through an online message, informing him that he was expected to open a non-residence account in Nigeria and make payment of $300. Qingzhu complied and made two other payments: $1430 and $3650 through Western Union.

Madu was arrested at the bank premises where he went to withdraw proceeds of his fraudulent activities.

He would be charged to court after investigations are concluded.

    The sad news is that these criminal elements from the South Eastern corridor of Nigeria are unapologetic of their inherent and inbuilt criminal geneology. They see themselves as heroe of their peers and are urged on to do more. These set of people are quick to admit their ingenuity and talents in all sphere of developments that include business and arts. They are quicker in rejecting the facts they constitute the largest most dreaded criminals and clinical fraudsters in Nigeria. A case of if its good it belongs to us, if its bad we all are involved. They deceptively arrogate to them everything good in Nigeria and yet flee their negleted backyard to create hegemonic kingdoms in other peoples territory. What a sad story to tell about Nigeria. Very sad indeef.
