Woman arrested for allegedly defrauding church organisation of N100m in Ogun State.

The police in Ogun State have arrested a 39-year-old woman for allegedly defrauding a church-based organisation of N100 million under the pretence of assisting it to raise fund for its charity programme.

A statement made available to our correspondent in Abeokuta yesterday by the command’s spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspect, Iwuagwu Onyinyechi, was nabbed following a petition written on behalf of the victim by a Lagos-based lawyer of the organisation, Barrister Godswill Ojakovo.

According to the police, the suspect reportedly got a Local Purchase Order (LPO) from a company and appealed to MIA Enterprise to fund the LPO, a development which made the church-based body made online transfer of N33 million to her.

The statement further explained that while the organisation was expecting a repayment, the suspect came with another LPO which she purportedly got from Ancillia Catholic hospital Iju and Holifull School Ikorodu.

The second round of request made by the suspect fetched her another payment of N77million.

The suspect was said to have gone into hiding shortly after she got the last payment in September 2018.

The statement said: “This prompted the church to make discreet enquiries about the LPOs submitted and found out that all the LPOs were forged.

“Upon the petition, the Commissioner of Police Ogun State, Ahmed Iiyasu, directed the CP’s Monitoring Team to go after the suspect and bring her to book. The team technically tracked the suspect and got her arrested on 21st of January 2019.

“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the commission of the crime. She admitted that all the LPOs presented by her were forged as most of the companies where she claimed to have gotten the LPOs were only imaginary.”

The Commissioner of Police has directed the monitoring team to arraign the suspect in court immediately investigation is concluded.
