A 24-year-old Nigerian man identified as Opomo Bello Terry has been apprehended by the police after he was caught in a fraud directed at actress Regina Daniels and her billionaire husband, Ned Nwoko.
Opoma Terry, who operates from Lagos state, sends messages to his victims, threatening to assassinate or kidnap them if some specified amount of money is not paid. The suspect, who recently got back from Ghana, was arrested for trying to defraud Hon. Ned Nwoko, the husband of Regina Daniels, by telling him that he was hired to assassinate the actress.
In a press round, Terry made it known that, at first, he tried defrauding Chief Nwoko of the sum of N700k, but along the line, he had a change of mind and started opening up himself, to the extent of telling him that he’s not actually an assassin, but a Yahoo boy who just needs his financial assistance to drop the habit.
However, Nwoko sent N400k to the man’s account and reported him to the bank which led to his arrest.
