The Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested one Abraham Adeniji for allegedly obtaining goods under false pretence and diversion of funds to the tune of N82, 803,550 million.
He was arrested following a petition received by the Commission from one Gao Shu Quin, a Chinese national, according to a statement issued by Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, on Monday.
The petitioner alleged that she met the suspect sometime in 2017 while doing her legitimate business.
She further alleged that the suspect deceived her into supplying him containers of textiles materials, believing he would remit the proceeds upon sale of the textile materials.
However, the suspect allegedly diverted the proceeds for personal use after sale.
The suspect will soon be charged to court as soon as the investigation is completed, the commission said.
