Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have arrested Chidozie Kingsley Nwachi, (a.k.a Dozie) for allegedly marrying an American, Nicole Kierulff Sayers ‘falsely,’ and defrauding her of $200,000(Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in the process.
In a statement from EFCC says Nwachi was arrested in Abuja on Wednesday, February 15, 2023, based on the claims of Sayers, alleging that the suspect lured her into a false marriage and defrauded her of her savings.
She said, “I was accustomed to transferring money to him and further felt I had no choice since I had just married him, even though I did not feel confident in my choice to have married him”.
EFCC says Nwachi’s ploy of defrauding his wife was the offer of a phony contract by the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Abuja. He allegedly made Sayers finance the execution of the contract until the petitioner contacted the Ministry with the contract papers and discovered that they were fake.
Realizing that Nwachi had sold her a dummy, Sayers lamented that I have been suicidal on and off when I realized he was a fraud, as I was drowning financially and facing bankruptcy.
Things from the suspect include two cars: Toyota Venza and Lexus ES300, expensive wristwatches, two Apple iPhones, two iPhone laptops, an international passport, and multiple Automated Teller Machines, ATMs, and cards. A sum of $2204( Two Thousand, Two Hundred and Four United States Dollars) was also recovered from him.
EFCC said, “He will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.”
