Fake EFCC operative, Ume Ifechukwu Clinton, arrested for defrauding Belgian €45,000

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that A 29-year-old Lagos big boy, Ume Ifechukwu Clinton, has been arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) for alleged fraud, impersonation and money laundering. 

It was gathered that the suspect was arrested on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 in Isheri area of Lagos State.

EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwajaren, in a statement on Thursday, October 20, said Clinton was arrested following a news story published by an online portal: foundation for investigative journalism narrating how he defrauded Axelle Mahieu, an educator working as a caregiver in Brussels, Belgium.

“The victim was surfing through her Facebook page in November 2021, when she saw that someone had sent her a message. The message was from Ume Ifechukwu Clinton, who introduced himself as “a friend of a friend”.

As they continued chatting in the following days, Clinton told Mahieu that he was an official of the EFCC, with a fake Identity Card and Nigerian Passport as proofs.

After several months of video calls and gaining Mathieu's trust, Clinton allegedly proposed a cryptocurrency business to her, assuring her of huge profit and secured capital. 

After convincing the Belgian, Clinton ended up defrauding her of €45,000,” the statement reads.
