•Job seekers fleeced on Facebook

Detectives attached to Area ‘D’ Command in Mushin, Lagos State, have arrested a man, Joel Asabor, for allegedly impersonating Senator Andy Ubah.

Asabor, it was gathered, posed on Facebook as the senator representing Anambra South and fleeced job seekers who applied to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

The suspect was reportedly trailed to Oghara in Delta State on Monday, where he was apprehended.

Asabor was said to have opened a Facebook account with Ubah’s picture, where he had private chats with job hunters and asked them to pay a certain amount of money to get their dream jobs.

His trailing, it was gathered, followed a petition by Charles Asugha on behalf of a victim, Chinelo Nnedimma, who lost N300,000 to the suspected fraudster.

It was learnt that having paid N300,000 to the suspect’s bank account and the job was not forthcoming, the victim was directed to contact a supposed lawmaker, identified simply as Nkiruka, for further discussions.

A source said the victim was swindled last December, adding that the police only got involved due to the petition.

He said: “The victim paid N300,000 through the bank account of Asabor Joel (3069996606). She was promised employment in NNPC. But after collecting the money, he (Asabor) started playing pranks with the victim. He gave the victim the mobile number of a certain lawmaker, Nkiruka, which was another ploy to swindle the victim the more.”
