Two men accused of conning an Italian preacher Ksh. 19 Million have been arraigned in court.
The two Gideon Nuka Gbavopnu and Seth Steve Okute were charged with obtaining money by false pretense.
Police yesterday stated that the two obtained the money from the Italian National Lewis Ikena on two different dates.
According to the police, the two duped the Italian national with Lewis Ikena on January 1st 2021 and April 30th 2021.
The DCI says that the two fraudsters have been arrested on several occasions.
“Preliminary investigations indicate that the Nigerian national has been following the preacher in his gospel missions all over the world and found the opportunity to strike when he got into the country. The preacher-cum-businessman was lured into the trap after he was shown fake gold which he paid for and even paid a significant amount of money to have a private jet deliver the consignment in Dubai,” said the DCI.
They however failed to deliver the shipment to Dubai as planned.
