The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission of Benin arrested Irabour Kennedy Osasouji for alleged fraud following a petition by German national Antje.
The victim complained to the commission that Usasugi, 21, defrauded her of €17,000.
The petitioner alleged that she met him on social media after Michael Patrick defrauded her of €68,000.
Anti claimed that Usasugi offered to help her recover the money but defrauded her of €17,000.
The suspect said he had only received 12,850 euros, said Wilson O’Garen, a spokesman for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, in a statement upon his arrest.
“The charge will be brought to the court as soon as the investigation is completed,” O’Garen added.
