The lady was a victim of romance scam with one Terry Mac which was eventually traced to Nigeria.
Oriafor admitted to the crime, saying he opened the Facebook account to con whoever fell prey to his baits.
Favour claimed to be a football agent on his fraudulent account. He took advantage of Yue when she fell in love with him. “She had fallen in love with me as Terry Mac, a football agent,” he confessed.
A domiciliary account of one Adeyemi Hassan Adedeji was used to carry out the transfer of the said sum.
