A 30-year-old Nigerian big boy, Roland Enuwese Esosa, has been arrested in Cape Town, South Africa, for allegedly defrauding an elderly woman he met on a dating app of R2 million (about N50million).

Esosa, who was arrested last week Wednesday in Northgate Mall in Roodepoort, Gauteng, was arraigned before the Stellenbosch Magistrate’s Court on Monday, July 25, on charges of fraud and money laundering.

IOL reports that he allegedly pretended to be an American engineer by the name of Larry Cole. Once Esosa had developed a relationship, he made up a story about why he needed money. The victim subsequently parted with R2 million over a six-month period.

“Immediately after the suspect was arrested he attempted to bribe the arresting officers with R500 000.00 for his release,”
