The suspect admitted he had defrauded his victims to the tune of about N50million since 2020.

EFCC added that, “Investigations revealed that the suspect had been using a First Bank account belonging to his mother, one of his accomplices, to launder the proceeds.”

Items recovered from the suspect are a Mercedes Benz S550 2015 Sedan car and a Lexus RX 350 SUV 2016.

Others are one iPhone 11 Pro Max; one iPhone 12 pro max; two MacBook Pro laptops; a PlayStation 5; an iPad and a small Nokia touch phone.

Uche and the mother will be charged to court soon.
