EFCC arrests woman over fraud


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested one Mrs. Ekaete Ime Sam for alleged criminal conspiracy, breach of trust, forgery and obtaining money by false pretence.

Ekaete is alleged to have collected N830, 000 from one Jerry Ekezie, a clearing agent, under the pretext that she needed part of the money (N130, 000) to clear some goods at the Apapa Wharf and the balance to fund a N227million contract in Abuja.[ Worldstage news Online]
