Pastor arrested over employment scam in Abuja
The Abuja police have arrested a pastor, Egbunu Vicent Onuche, 25, who specializes in employment racketeering after he duped one Ijeoma Ebenje of N200,000, with a promise of employment with the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS).
The senior pastor of Spirit Embassy church located in Gwagwalada, explained that he met one Alhaji Sanusi Musa sometime back, who told him that if he had anybody looking for employment he can assist.
Vincent then informed his friend Ekene, Ijeoma’s brother, who then told her about the offer. She was asked to pay the sum of N200,000, which she did and even got a confirmation email from the fraudster-created Immigration e-mail address.
He said 16 other people also paid him the sums ranging from N200,000 to N300, 000 for employment into the Nigeria Prison Service and placement into the Nigeria Immigration Service before the arrest.
