The suspect, Chidozie Kingsley Nwachi (aka Dozie).

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have arrested a suspected fraudster for allegedly marrying an American, and defrauding her of the sum of $200,000 (Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in the process.

The suspect, Chidozie Kingsley Nwachi (aka Dozie), was arrested in Abuja on Wednesday, February 15, 2023, following claims by his victim, one Nicole Kierulff Sayers alleging that the suspect lured her into a false marriage and defrauded her of her savings.

TheFact Daily gathers that Nwachi had defrauded his “wife” by offering her a phony contract by the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Abuja, and allegedly making Sayers finance the execution of the contract until she contacted the Ministry with the contract papers and discovered that they were fake.

Realising that Nwachi had sold her a dummy, Sayers lamented that she had become somewhat suicidal when she learnt he was a fraud, and was “drowning financially and facing bankruptcy”.

“I was accustomed to transferring money to him and further felt I had no choice, since I had just married him, even though I did not feel confident in my choice to have married him”, she said.

Items recovered from the suspect include a Toyota Venza and a Lexus ES300, expensive wrist watches, two iPhones, two Apple laptops, an international passport and multiple Automated Teller Machine (ATM) cards. A sum of $2,204 (Two Thousand, Two Hundred and Four United States Dollars) was also recovered from him.

A statement issued by the Commission’s Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, on Wednesday affirms that Nwachi will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
