Two suspected swindlers have been arrested by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command in the Ikorodu area of the state for duping a yet-to-be-identified woman seeking spiritual N7.5m.
According to the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the suspects were able to carry out the scam under the pretence of providing spiritual help for the woman.
He further revealed that the suspects were on the verge of collecting another sum of money when the police arrested them.
Hundeyin wrote, “In Ikorodu, these two duped a woman to the tune of N7.5m under the guise of providing ‘spiritual help’. She realised the fraud and approached the police. They were apprehended when they arranged to get another batch of funds from her. Investigation is ongoing.”
