A Nigerian man in India alongside an accomplice, have been arrested by police in Prayagraj, for scamming women on Facebook.
The accused used to befriend people and dupe them of their money via the social media platform, said Naveen Tiwari, Senior Superintendent of Police.
“We have received a diary from them in which it is written that they have taken Rs 15 lakh, Rs 3 lakh and Rs 5 lakh from different people,” Tiwari added.
Besides that, the police have also recovered 10 mobile phones, foreign currency, and debit cards from the two people arrested.
Investigation is currently ongoing to know if they have more people that they work with and they will be charged to court upon conclusion of our investigation, the Police chief said.
