Police arrests US soldier for allegedly scamming Nigerian women


Operatives of the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad (F-SARS), of the Police Command in Imo says it has arrested a member of the U.S. Army, Mr Garrick Michael, over alleged advanced fee fraud.

Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, disclosed this on Wednesday in Owerri while parading him and other suspects involved in different crimes, ranging from armed robbery, kidnapping to child trafficking.

Galadanchi said Michael is an American citizen who specialised in defrauding women of their huge money under the pretext of securing American visa for them.

He named victims of the suspect as Sylva Chineyenwa, Wuchi Peace and Duny Glory.

Michael told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that he returned to Nigeria to visit his wife who resided in the country before he met his three alleged victims.

He said his business deal with the women was still valid before his arrest.

The suspect will be charged to court after investigation.
