A 39yr old woman Iwuagwu Onyinyechi has been arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command for defrauding a church based organisation “MIA enterprise* to the tune of *#100million under the pretence of assisting the organisation to raise fund for its charity programme.
The arrest of the suspect followed a petition written by the Lagos based lawyer of the organisation Barrister Godswill Ojakovo to the Commissioner of Police Ogun State in which he complained that his client was defrauded by the suspect through an act of forgery.
The suspect who claimed to have gotten an LPO from a company known as Location 3 properties and appealed to MIA organisation to fund the LPO, consequent upon which the sum of #33, 118, 000 was transfered online to her.
While the organisation was awaiting for the repayment of the above amount the suspect came with another LPOs she purportedly got from Ancillia Catholic hospital Iju and Holifull school Ikorodu upon which another sum of #77 million was given to her after showing relevant documents and proves to back her claims.
He stated further in the petition that as soon as she got the last payment in September 2018, the suspect disappeared into thin air.
This prompted the church to make discreet enquiries about the LPOs submitted and found out that all the LPOs were forged ones.
Upon the petition, the Commissioner of Police Ogun State, CP Ahmed directed the CP’s Monitoring team to go after the suspect and bring her to book.
The team technically tracked the suspect and got her arrested on 21st of January 2019.
On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the commission of the crime.
She admitted that all the LPOs presented by her were all forged as most of the companies where she claimed to have gotten the LPOs were only imaginary.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police CP Ahmed Iliyasu has directed the monitoring team to arraign the suspect in court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
