Men of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Nigeria Police Force arrested one Igwe Gift Okechukwu, pictured above, involved in criminal conspiracy, organ trafficking, fraud, cybercrime, robbery, impersonation, deceit, fraud and identity theft which was reported in the Force Criminal Investigation Department by Anita Chinwe Mathias 'f'.

A statement released by ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, spokesperson of the command, revealed that the complainant is a POS operator with several POS branches in Owerri and that on the fateful day she came into contact with the suspect, she went to a shopping center in Owerri to get some personal effects where the suspect introduced himself to her as Dr. Henry Ovie, a neurologist recently transferred from Port Harcourt to FMC, Owerri.

Adejobi said the complainant further stated that Igwe collected her number and established a close relationship with her.

“He told her he was expecting some money and would love to use her POS to receive the money. The suspect then sent the sum of five million, five hundred thousand naira (#5,500,000) to her account, which made her believe that the suspect had a genuine source of income. She went on to state that on September 11, 2023, the suspect tricked her into entering a code into her POS machine, which she did due to the trust she placed in him. After the suspect left her home, she realized that all the money from her POS account had been withdrawn which amounted to the sum of twenty-one million naira (#21,000,000) and all efforts were made to contact the suspicion were unsuccessful. She also went to the Federal Medical Center, where the suspect claimed to work, to ask about him and was told that none of her doctors had that name.

She immediately reported the matter to the Abuja Force Criminal Investigation Department where intelligent officers swung into action to arrest the suspect.''

The statement further says;

''During the investigation, the officers discovered that the suspect had changed his phone number, transferred from Owerri to Lafia in Nasarawa State, where he rented and furnished an apartment, where he was later arrested after being tracked. Further investigation revealed that the suspect has different names such as Igwe Richard, Ovie Henry with various phone numbers and emails which he uses to perpetrate his heinous acts. The investigation also revealed that the identity of the suspect was not documented on the National Identity Management Commission portal, nor was his information in any Nigerian intelligence database. After his arrest it was discovered that the said Igwe was also involved in organ trafficking and that he has a contact in Toronto, Canada with whom he is involved in the human organ trade.''

Adejobi added that the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, reiterated that the arrest highlights the commitment and dedication of the force in combating crime and criminality and also in ensuring the safety of our community. He said the IGP assured Nigerians that an extensive investigation was underway and that all other perpetrators involved in this heinous act would be brought to trial and charged to court.
