The suspects were apprehended after the victim raised an alarm concerning the fake promise. They were about to collect an additional sum of N500,000 from the woman.

Officers of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps.

According to the Daily Post, the suspects promised to double the money for the woman using a chemical.

Pedro Awili, the state commandant of the NSCDC, said that the men first approached the woman telling her that they needed N100,000 to buy the chemical.

Following this, it was reported that they returned to collect a N500,000 balance for the job. It was at this point that the woman reported them to security operatives who arrested them.

Awili said, “This led to the arrest of the two men who gave fake names and states of origin to the woman,” the Commandant added, noting that the two men confessed to the crime and pleaded for leniency.”

“They claimed to be doing it for the first time,”

The NSCDC boss advised people in the state to be weary of such fraudsters, in order not to fall victim.
