“The suspect subsequently went one step further by persuading the victim to travel into Nigeria on January 9, 2023, via the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos. After landing in Nigeria, she flew into Ilorin the next day, where she was met by the suspect.

Before she was rescued by police operations, the suspect also deceitfully grabbed an unknown number of USD from the victim.

“He said that proper authorities had been alerted so that appropriate action could be taken.

Despite the fact that she enjoys the atmosphere of the country, the visitor from another country said that her preferred destination is the United States.

She added, “I like Nigeria and I would want to come back but what I want now is to go back to America.” “I like Nigeria and I will like to come back.”

Even though Joshua admitted to being a Yahoo suspect, the Police Commissioner stated that he would not be handed over to the Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. Instead, the Police Commissioner stated that Joshua would be investigated by the Police and charged in Court after a comprehensive investigation of the alleged crime he committed.

During an interview with members of the press, Vonapoloius said that she had landed in the nation late on Monday night and had traveled from Lagos to Ilorin the following morning.

“We got to know one other via social media, and he offered to visit Nigeria. However, when I got there, he led me to ShopRite and a bureau de change to convert my money into the currency of Nigeria. After I had spent all of the money that I was carrying, he instructed me to urge my folks to send additional money.
