The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a certain Hajiya Hadiza Umar Abubakar for allegedly defrauding a job seeker, Nuradeen Abubakar of N3million.
The businesswoman allegedly promised the unsuspecting job seeker an instant employment in EFCC, and was nabbed in a bank where she was making a transaction on her account.
EFCC gathered that the victim met the suspect through her son and was asked to pay N6m, but he paid N3m into the suspect’s account on October 29, 2019, having promised to pay the balance after receiving his employment letter.
Hadiza Umar Abubakar promised that the letter would be delivered on November 7, 2019, two weeks from the date of the part payment.
Dele Oyewale, EFCC spokesman said in a statement on Thursday September 3;
“The suspect was arrested in a bank she sent her son to make a transaction, unaware that the EFCC had placed a Post No Debit (PND) on all her accounts.
“The victim stated that he had not received an employment letter nine months after paying the suspect.”
The statement added that the suspect will soon be charged to court.
