Nigerian arrested

The Police in India have arrested a Nigerian national for allegedly defrauding 20 people of Rs 3 crore (about N16.55m) in kidney donation scam.

Reports from India said David Ujma Uba, 32, had promised to help his victims secure kidney donations.

Uba arrived Kolkata in the world most populous nation on a tourist visa in 2013.

Police in the city said the Nigerian created a fake hospital website and issued an advertisement asking those in need of kidneys to get in touch with him.

Uba asked those who contacted him to pay various sums into his bank account but failed to render the services he advertised.

Realising they have been scammed, the victims filed a complaint with Kolkata cyber crime police in April.

Uba was traced through his phone’s call record details and arrested at his friend’s place in Nagenahalli Dinne near Kothanur.
