Agents from the Benin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) seized 19-year-old Iredia Endurance on suspicion of fraud.
Endurance was recently detained by the Commission as a consequence of a petition from a British woman named Chrstine Brown who claimed the suspect defrauded her of £450,000.00, according to a statement made by Wilson Uwujaren, the anti-graft agency's spokesperson.
“The defendant admitted to receiving $250,000 from the complaint in Bitcoin, FedEx, and gift cards after being apprehended.
The suspect said that he spent the money on a variety of things, including automobiles, gold chains, and real estates.
Mobile phones, laptops, SIM cards, and real estate are some of the assets seized from the suspect.
The suspect will be charged in court as soon as the inquiry is over, he added.
