Nollywood actor, IK Ogbonna has reacted to the arrest of a fraudster who stole $70,000 from an American woman by posing as him.
The actor warns the general public to be wary of imposters who use his photos on social media for their fraudulent activities.
He shared this revelation via his Instagram page on Tuesday 4th of April. He also mentioned that the fraudster is now standing trial in court. In his words, IK wrote:
This is to inform the general public once again to be wary of all those who are using my name and image on social media to defraud unsuspecting innocent women in love relationship scam. One of such is the recent case of one Kelvin Enofe, a 23 years old boy who duped an American woman of over 70 thousand US dollars, but as God would have it, some private investigators came to the rescue of the lady by revealing the true identity of Kelvin Enofe. Consequent upon the said investigation, the Nigerian police went for Kelvin Enofe’s arrest, investigated the matter, and he is currently standing trial at the Igbosere Magistrate Court in Lagos Nigeria.
The Nollywood superstar further warned that there may be so much more of this fraudster out there and encouraged people to report such to his verified social media handles.
I do this today again to let the general public know that there are a lot more of other persons claiming to be IK Ogbonna on the Internet. I will never ask for monetary favour from anyone on the Internet and if you see such on social media, please report such person or persons to me on my verified social media handle.
Great job from Spaurell Private Investigators Ltd and the Nig police
