EFCC arrests fake Senator, Ifechukwu Makwe, over alleged €5.7m internet Cyber Crime



 The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has arrested a fake Senator, Ifechukwu Makwe for alleged €5.7m internet fraud.

Ifechukwu was arrested in the Guzape area of Abuja following credible intelligence about his internet-related fraud activities.

A statement on Monday by the Head, Media & Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, said the impostor defrauded a Spaniard using different identities.


“Upon arrest, it was discovered that the suspect, bearing many aliases (Fahad Makwe, Senator Tompolo, Tom Makwe, Dr. Bran), defrauded a Spaniard of €5.7million.


Ifechukwu allegedly claimed to be a US Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI agent, and diplomatic solicitor and succeeded in defrauding his victim using fake identities. The suspect allegedly started defrauding the victim in 2013 when he first met her on social media,” the statement added.


Wilson Wujaren said the suspect would be charged in court as soon as the investigations are concluded.
