Nigerian fraudster Itumo Chidebere arrested in Dubai for N333m fraud

The INTERPOL Unit of the Nigeria Police, headed by Adeyemi Ogunjemilusi, in conjunction with its counterpart in Abu-Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, has arrested one Itumo Anthony Chidebere, a suspected fraudster, who fled to Dubai after defrauding a Nigerian businesswoman.

The 35-year old suspect, who hails from Ebonyi State, has been on the run for the past 13 months after committing the crime, the Nigerian police spokesman, Frank Mba, said in a statement.
“In about June, 2012, the suspect was reported to have presented himself to the said businesswoman as an Estate Broker in Dubai, claiming that he could purchase a house for his victim.

“Relying on this assurance, the unsuspecting complainant made a payment of $2,082,139 US Dollars (N333 million) to the suspect, on the receipt of which the suspect disappeared without purchasing the said house, but rather chose to be running from one country to another in a bid to evade arrest,” the police spokesman said.
The police spokesperson said INTERPOL Abuja is working with their United Arab Emirates counterpart and the Federal Ministry of Justice to facilitate the extradition of the suspect to Nigeria.
