Anil Mathur, a resident of Naya Nagar, Mira Road came in contact with the Nigerian, identified as Uzoma Eleazar, on social media and developed a friendship. Eleazar offered Mr. Mathur a dealership in seeds that he claimed used to produce expensive medicines in Nigeria. The victim fell for it and had paid nearly Rs. 23 lakh since June 21.
Police said Eleazar managed to sell seeds in 400-gram packets for Rs. 1 lakh each. API Prafull Wagh, LCB, Thane Rural said the seeds are sold for Rs. 1,000 per kg in Nigeria.
He said more arrests are likely as the accused have conned several people in Maharashtra and other states through an online scam. “We have appealed to the victims to come forward and register complaints against the accused,” Mr. Wagh said.
