A Nigerian National, Nzemeka Ezims was arrested for alleged public fraud via loading false information online as well as allegedly running racketeering and money-laundering scams.
The Immigration Police Bureau chief, Sompong Chingdoung, told reporters that the Nigerian suspect was arrested for alleged public fraud via loading false information online.
Deputy Commander For Investigation with the Immigration Police, Pol Colonel Sathit Prom-uthai accused Ezims of running a money-laundering business by exporting goods to Africa and providing an underground money-exchange service. The arrest warrant was issued for the romantic scam the man reportedly involved in from June to September 2018, which led to 13 victims losing a combined Bt2.9 million (About N32.2million)).
Since the bank accounts used in the crime were linked and led to the arrest of a Thai woman who withdrew cash to wire to other members of the gang, police were able to zero in on five Nigerians, including Ezims, and five Thais.
