Blogger arrested in Lagos for allegedly defrauding UK-based activist


A Nigerian blogger, Apeh Peterhot has been arrested by the Nigerian Police in Lagos.

The Benue born Blogger had allegedly opened a Facebook pseudo account
in the name of Queen Ann Ochoga and used it to defraud Mr. Philip
Agbese, to the tune of N2.2m.

It could also be recalled that, an innocent pregnant woman, Ann
Johnson, was implicated in the said transaction, as the blogger
cunningly used her bank account details, under the pretence that he had
issues with his BVN.

Luck, however, ran out of him, when the pregnant woman turned herself in at the police station and made confessional statement.

The culprit, who has been on the run for days, was arrested Tuesday
afternoon, following a coordinated operation of civilians and undercover
policemen, following a tip off.

He is currently being held at Idimu Police Station, Area M, Alimoso
Division of Lagos command, pending a signal from the FCT command, where
the matter is being handled.
