EFCC – Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested singer Aniji Shedrack Chidubem, aka Sanij-D, on Monday for allegedly defrauding a Briton, Susan Mclean, of the sum of £9,300.
The Lagos-based artiste was alleged to have also defrauded an American, Diana Rosado Gonzalax, of $2,000.
Sanij-D was arrested in the Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, after credible intelligence on the activities of a syndicate of internet fraudsters.
EFCC said the singer, known for hits like “Profesy” and “Katalina,” allegedly impersonated a marine engineer, Christopher Rossi, who fixes boats and pipelines in Singapore.
“He used Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram applications with foreign phone numbers as his fraudulent means of perpetrating and defrauding his victims,” EFCC alleged.
The anti-graft agency said Sanij-D will be arraigned as soon as investigations are concluded.
