An Aba based businessman simply identified as Chukwudi, has arrested a Port Harcourt based lady named Joy, whom he met online, for failing to visit him after receiving transport fare of N8,500.
It was reported that they both met on popular social media app, Facebook, and after several attempts of meeting each other, he finally sent her the sum of N8,500 to her access account which was meant for her transport fare.
After sending her the money, the said lady stopped taking his calls and eventually blocked him.
Chukwudi proceeded to take the matter further by involving the Police who tracked Joy in Port Harcourt, were she was eventually arrested and taken to court.
According to Chukwudi’s lawyer, Ken Ukpai Esq, Joy was to pay a compensation of N850,000 as according to him, his client would have made more than the money if he had invested in it.
The lawyer also added that it was a deliberate plan by Joy to swindle his client of his hard earned money.
