Love scam: Aba based Man arrests PH Lady who collected his N8,500 and refused to show up

A man who resides in Abia state has reportedly arrested a Port Harcourt based lady and charged her court for allegedly defrauding him of N8,500 meant for transportation.

The Aba based man who met the lady on Facebook is said to have paid her the said amount to come visit him from neigbouring city, Port Harcourt, Rivers state, but she did not show up.

After collecting the cash and refused to turn up, the man tracked her to her location after many months and arrested.

According to City News, Chukwudi, 31-year old businessman, said he met Queen Benita, 22, online who agreed to pay him a visit in Aba on the 10th of October 2019 and lured him to send N8, 500 to her Access Bank Account as transport.

His lawyer, Ken Ukpai Esq , said the act was a calculated measure to defraud his client and in separate petitions to the force headquarters and the court, Ken demanded the compensation of N850,000 for his client.

He argued that if his client, a businessman had invested since 10th October, 2019 (About 10 months) he would have made more that the demanded compensation.

He said as far as the law is concerned whether the amount paid is a gift or a contract, the two entered into a binding contract.

The law court enforces contracts and not agreements (every contract is an agreement but not every agreement is a contract)..
