GENERAL NEWS

End of road for fake embassy fraudsters
By Odita Sunday 

WHAT must have been a lucrative but fraudulent enterprise for alleged fake officials of the United States Embassy, Chinedu Ezeona and his driver, Emmanuel Eze, has come to an end. 


They were arrested and paraded by the Special Fraud Unit (SFU) of the Nigeria Police, Milverton Road, Ikoyi, following a petition addressed to the Commissioner of Police in charge of the unit, Mr. Tunde Ogunsakin.
Three other persons, Ofodeme Sylvester, Uzodimma Didimus and Onyekachi Samuel were also paraded for attempting to bribe the police to release the principal suspects, Ezeona and Eze.
Ezeona allegedly claimed to be an employee of the United States of America Embassy and offered to assist the complainant procure an American Visa.
The complainant, a female, then informed her husband and both of them raised the sum of $15, 615 (N2. 5 million), which they gave to Ezeona.
However, it was after Ezeona demanded for extra amount of money that the couple realized that he was a fraudster.
Detectives in SFU, upon receiving the petition, commenced investigation into the matter and arrested him last week.
They, however, discovered that 41-year-old Ezeonna also operated under a fake name, David Obiora Aniekwe that was boldly inscribed on a fake US Embassy Complimentary Card with designation as a Senior Systems Analyst.
The cards are at present with detectives as exhibit.
Further investigation revealed that Ezeonna allegedly used the bank account of 29-year-old Eze, his driver, to collect the money from his victim.
The prime suspect, Ezeona, who spoke to newsmen during their parade, denied the allegation levelled against him, saying that he was just a victim of circumstance.
The suspect, an indigene of Umunze in Anambra State, said: "The complainant's mother and I were lovers. We met at a political rally in Enugu and we started dating.
"Although she is 65 years old, she loved me dearly and even used to shower me with gifts so  that I should not date anyone else.
"She had already started processing a US Visa for me to travel abroad and my driver had collected the money from her to give to Fatai.
"However, she later discovered that I was seeing someone else and this caused a serious fight between us and she said I must return all the gifts that she had given to me. "We did not see each other for a while but one day, she called me and said she missed me and she wanted us to settle our quarrel, so I went to see her.
"She said she would continue with the plans to sponsor me to the US and told her daughter to give me the money to pay one Fatai, who would help me to procure a US Visa, but I didn't know I was being set up."
Ezeonna, a student of National Open University, said he knew nothing about the fake complimentary card and that it could have been part of the plot to put him in trouble.
"This is Nigeria. Anybody can print a fake complimentary card and put any name on it. It's not evidence at all. It could even be part of the set up," he said.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
