The CP said: “The suspects; Nicholas Lambert, aka Johnson Mills of Onumonu Street, Owerri; Collins Njoku of Umudim Umuduruonyeoma, in the Ikeduru Local Government Area; Bright Chukwuezi of Umudim Umuduruonyeoma and Chukwuemeka Ononiwu also of Umudim Umuduruonyeoma, were arrested on September 3, 2018.

“We swooped on them at their hideout in Umuodu Mbieri, in the Mbaitoli LGA after the victim lodged a formal complaint to the police.

“The suspects have made useful statements to the police, confessing to have defrauded Jeanette Brunsma of Ringwey 10,Weiloo, Netherlands, of the sum of €15,000.

“The exhibits recovered from the suspects include 11 laptops and 20 phones of different brands.”

The prime suspect, Lambert, admitted he committed the crime.

He said: “I met Jeanette on Facebook; I claimed to be a US soldier to defraud him of €15,000. After the initial payment, I demanded another €1,500, after which I was arrested by the police in my hotel room. He said the other suspects were not aware that he made another demand on the Dane”.
