The Suspect, Hajiya Hadiza Umar Abubakar
A woman identified as Hajiya Hadiza Umar Abubakar has been apprehended by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly defrauding a job seeker, Nuradeen Abubakar of N3million.
The businesswoman who promised the unsuspecting job seeker an instant employment in EFCC, was nabbed in a bank where she was making a transaction on her account.
It was gathered that the victim met the suspect through her son and was asked to pay N6m, but he only paid N3m into the suspect’s account on October 29, 2019. He promised to pay the balance after receiving his employment letter.
The letter was promised to be delivered on November 7, 2019, two weeks from the date of the part payment.
Dele Oyewale, EFCC spokesman said in a statement on Thursday September 3;
“The suspect was arrested in a bank she sent her son to make a transaction, unaware that the EFCC had placed a Post No Debit (PND) on all her accounts.
“The victim stated that he had not received an employment letter nine months after paying the suspect."
The statement added that Hadiza Abubakar suspect will soon be charged to court.
