August 13, 2015 – Pictures: Nigerian Fraudster Arrested For Defrauding American Of $4 Million, Ado Ekiti Hotel Owner, Idowu Olarenwaju In EFCC Net

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday said it has arrested a suspected fraudster, Idowu Olarenwaju (alias Capt Anthony Abel Saramoh) has been defrauding an American Citizen of $4million through his company, Total Intership Nigeria Limited.

The suspect blew the fraud cash on exotic cars, acquisition of several properties in Port Harcourt, and a 44-room hotel in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State.

The posh cars recovered from the suspect included a 2014 Range Rover, 2013 Honda Crosstour, 2013 Range Evogue and Honda CRV.

According to a statement by the Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren.

The statement said: “The heist was earned through a phony crude oil contracts with the victim, wiring the said amount into the account of Total Intership Nigeria Limited ostensibly for the supply of crude oil.

“The bubble burst after the victim was left clutching the air, in an exasperating wait that ended with a petition to the EFCC.

“One Joe Onwudimowei, an accomplice who operates the account of Total Intership Nigeria Limited with Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) where the proceeds of the said fake contract was deposited, was arrested on 18th June, 2015 and upon interrogation, fingered Idowu Olanrewaju and one Otunba Yemi Osho as the people he handed over all monies that passed through the account.ekiti hotelier fraudster

”On the 19th of June, 2015, the duo of Idowu Olanrewaju and Yemi Osho were arrested following a dawn raid on their homes by operatives of the EFCC.”

The statement said the suspect, who has no reasonable source of income, was speechless when confronted with facts.hotel owner dupes american

The statement added: “According to Onwudimowei, Olanrewaju sometime in 2010, instructed him to withdraw the sum of Three Million, Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N3, 500, 000.00) for Chief Yemi Osho. Osho, he claimed, in turn handed over the money to two people sent to him by Olarenwaju.

“This singular involvement of Osho was what made Olanrewaju confess to the fraud as he had initially denied knowing Onwudimowei. When Olanrewaju was confronted with the testimony of Osho, sources at the EFCC disclosed that he was speechless and began to plead for mercy.

“Olanrewaju who does not have any reasonable source of income was discovered to have several properties in Port Harcourt, Rivers State and a 44 rooms hotel in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State. Also recovered from were a number of exotic cars including, a 2014 Range Rover, 2013 Honda Crosstour, 2013 Range Evogue and Honda CRV.

Uwujaren said the suspect will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.

  2. noooooooooooooooooooooo why? is only Biafrans that are 419ers. nonsence. like father like son, like awo like olanrewaju.

  3. Everyday is for the thief but one day is for the owner, God will expose all the evil doers in this country, pls why you guys are not saying or commenting anything about this? is it bcos the youngman is from western Nigeria.

  4. why on earth should a buyer pay money upfront when product has not been ingested into his tank? instrument is all he supposed to give, then makes payment only after products has been delivered, qnq performed and oil ingested into his tank. original documents handed over to him after he gas made all payments while seller helps him recharter vessel from vessel handlers.. anything upfront fees is criminals. you only pay for product upon delivery not even NNPC will ask u for upfront fees.. Never!

    just look at d stupid nicompoopish baboon’s face.. messing real deals and making all Nigerian look like fraudster. anyobe caught is such act shld be prosecuted. intact such shld be hanged.. Everywhere you go u hear Nigerians this and that.. because of the bastardious cowards. Kill them all. I hv no respect for such..

    Devil gives u small n takes ur life. if u do something in a clean n real way, what d hell will happen to u?? FOOLS.

    And to all buyers never accept any deal with upfront fees, get ur product first before making payments. stop falling a victim. instrument is all u can place before your product is delivered. give ur instrument time if buyer didn’t deliver, close the transaction..

    wake up.

    thanks.

Even if you waka went, you still be tif.

  6. Lol people who say bad thing that happened in nigeria is from the east,make una see say west don take over it

  7. One good thing about this incident is that the fraudsters have been arrested for their illegal and their unlawful act but the sad part of it is about the American citizens who should have been left alone to solve the puzzle by themselves. The reason is that the State Department had won these people not to have any business transactions they knew nothing about especially if that invitation comes from Nigeria. The American citizens who are caught up in this mess were trying to involve in shady deal themselves, they knew that was not a genuine business and they still went ahead to play with their hard earn money. Bottom line is the Americans should also share from that blame.

  8. DEAR MR OIYIOSHI, ANUMANU.

    WELL DONE MY BOY, I THINK IT IS BETTER TO DO 149 WITH AMERICAN BECAUSE THEY DID THE SAME TO YOUR ANCESSTOR. ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE UNDER THEIR SPELL.

  9. Please ladies and gentlemen, let’s condemn the perpetrator of the evil not generalize. In every nation and tribes there are good and evil people. It is only the fickle minded and ill conceived and intellectually deficient people that will generalize and dehumanize a whole tribe or nation because of the actions of a criminal or criminals in that society. Please do not descend to that level.
