A 29-year-old commercial motorcyclist, Victor Ukachuckwu, has confessed to using an application he downloaded from the Internet to defraud Point of Sales operators in Ondo State.
Ukachukwu made the confession while speaking with newsmen after he was paraded by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) on Thursday in Akure.
The suspect claimed he started engaging in the fraud about a month ago.
“I saw the application online and I learned how to use it which I tried and it worked, though I used it only five times in this month.
“ I made N55,000 from the fraud business before I was arrested by NSCDC operatives in Akure,” he said.
While speaking on the incident, the State Commandant of NSCDC, Hammed Abodunrin, explained that the suspect had defrauded many PoS operators with his tricks.
According to him, the suspect is in habit of going to POS operators to withdraw money.
