Two Nigerians arrested

Staff Reporter

On charges of duping people by making fraudulent offers through e-mails

NEW DELHI: Two Nigerian nationals have been arrested by the New Delhi police on charges of duping people of lakhs of rupees by making fraudulent offers through e-mails.

D.S. Ramchandra Raju, a resident of Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh, recently lodged a complaint alleging that one Samuel Sowoto had cheated him of over Rs. 15 lakhs.

According to the complaint, the Nigerian national contacted Mr. Raju through e-mail and offered him to pay 8,50,000 dollars as gift. He then directed him to collect it from his secretary, Collins Aneke, a legal practitioner who was purportedly at Benin in West Africa.

He extracted over Rs. 15 lakhs from Mr. Raju as the expenditure on the legal formalities involved.
