Commission, EFCC, Ibadan Zonal Office has
arrested the duo of Timothy Adegbaji Ademiju

and obtaining by false pretence.

allegedly struck a deal with a student of
Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba, Ondo

known as Opinion (now at large), to fleece one
Giacomo Rossi, an Italian, of huge sum of
money while posing as a lady by name, Grace
Thomas.

Ademiju allegedly used his position as the
officer in charge of Western Money Transfer to
process the fraudulent transactions coming
from the Italian to ‘Thomas’.

The arrest followed a petition from the victim
alleging that he was contacted on a dating site
by one ‘Thomas’ posing to be an American
Nursing student from OAU, and was in dire need
of financial assistance in form of a loan to
complete her studies. The loan which ‘Thomas’
promised to pay back was a decoy to trick
Rossi into the fraudulent game.

monetary assistance, paid in tranches, to the
tune of €2,400 (Two Thousand Four Hundred
Euros) which is equivalent of N1,221,600.00
(One Million, Two Hundred and Twenty One
Thousand, Six Hundred Naira) before it dawned
on him that it was a scam.

The suspects would be charged to court as
soon as investigation into the matter is
concluded.
