Four Nigerians Arrested By Indian Police Over Online Fraud

On Saturday, January 3rd, the Hyderabad police in India arrested four Nigerians including a woman for internet fraud. The police said they recovered a car, money and mobile phones from them.

The accused, Peter Austin (29), Eboh Felix (26), Steffi Ebohon (24) and Uzaonicha Daniel Iwenwanne (26), reportedly contacted a student named Mohd Wasiuddin, and told him he’s won some money.

The police said the gang managed to convince the victim to deposit money for registration, customs clearance, processing fees and other expenses.

“Believing the gang members, Wasiuddin deposited about Rs. 35 lakh in different bank accounts operated from Gujarat, Rajasthan and Mumbai, only to realize later that it was fraud,” the police in charge said.

The police arrested the four Nigerians after they tried to defraud another victim. Their phone call records and email conversations were traced, leading the police straight to them. They will be facing

trial soon in India.
