Anambra State Police Command has arrested a 22-years-old man identified as David Maduabuchi for luring two teenage girls on Facebook with marriage proposals and making them steal money from their respective parents for him.

The police spokesperson, SP Haruna Mohammed, who disclosed this to newsmen, said the suspects met the girls who were aged 18 years each on Facebook, and later manipulated them with promises of marriage before he defrauded them of N318,000 and N100,000 each.

”At about 7 am, police officers attached to Awada Division arrested one David Maduabuchi ‘m’ aged 22 years of No 16 Chukwu Onovo street, Okpoko,” Mohammed said.

“Suspect specializes on swindling vulnerable youngsters particularly teenage girls on Facebook and hoodwinks them into stealing from their parents and guardian for him (the suspect).

“Preliminary investigation revealed that between the months of March, 2019 and November, 2019, the suspect lured one Ogechi Miracle ‘f’ aged 18 years and Chinasa Peter ‘f’ aged 18yrs on Facebook under false pretences of marrying them.

“Victims were further tutored by the suspect and they both stole the sums of three hundred and eighteen thousand naira (#318,000) and one hundred thousand Naira (#100,000) respectively at different times from their parents, as well as laptop computers which they handed over to him.

“Case is under investigation, after which suspect would be charged to court for prosecution.”

KanyiDaily recalls that a 60-year-old man identified as Charles Chikwe was dragged before Ikeja Chief Magistrates Court in Lagos for duping a 50-year-old widow of N150,000 and valuables worth N627,000 on the pretext of marrying her.

The man failed to marry the woman as promised and refused to pay back the money he collected from her, neither did he return the land documents she gave him.
