The spokesman for the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed this in a statement on Friday, November 11 in Abuja, Punch reports.
The suspect identified as Damilola Fasakin, allegedly posed as Anthony Miller, Dave Mason and Bright Washington to deceive and defraud unsuspecting ladies on the Internet.
Punch reports that Fasakin defrauded unsuspecting victims to the tune of N2m.
“At the point of arrest, EFCC operatives recovered one Dodge Caliber Sxi car with registration number EKY-145EC and an NYSC clearance/discharge letter.
“Other items recovered from him are three copies of fake international passport data pages with different names and pictures, two drivers’ licenses and suspected fake bank documents,” Uwujaren said.
