Police operatives have arrested one Mr. Feranmi Adeyemi, a fake lawyer and cyber fraudster who scammed one Miss Buhari Safurat Temitope via Facebook in Ekiti State.
The State Police Command paraded the fake lawyer over alleged impersonation and obtaining money under false pretense.
He was accused of defrauding several persons including Mr. Steve Ayokunle Omisore, Eniosi Funmilayo and madam Oke Bamidele.
Mr. Adeyemi had posted himself on Facebook as a legal practitioner under the false pretense of rendering legal services through which his clients were defrauded.
He equally disguised as the coordinator of an NGO tagged “Total Motivation Network” in Nigeria.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Amba Asuquo, while addressing newsmen in Ado Ekiti on Monday, said the suspect confessed to the crime and said he will be charged to court after investigation.
Asuquo advised people to avoid interaction with strange people on social media platforms, as they may become victim to such cyber fraudster.
Adeyemi originally hails from Ayetoro-gbede in Yagba Kogi State.
