River State Police have arrested a gentleman posing as Ned Nwoko’s son.
A 21-year-old man known as Emmanuel O Israel has been arrested by Officers of the River State Police Command after impersonating former Nigerian Senator Ned Nwoko’s son Emzy Ned Nwoko Junior.
The young man is said to have created accounts on all the social media outlets for extortion.
According to the report, Emmanuel dupes innocent Nigerians for their money and promises to secure financial deals for them.
“Intelligence also revealed that the fake Nwoko’s son had kept physical contacts with several unsuspecting members of the public with dubious promises of securing financial deals and sundry favors for them, with intent to extort,” a source close to Nwoko said.
Aside from being accused of hoodwinking unsuspected Nigerians, Emmanuels O Israel who goes by the name Emzy Ned Nwoko Junior has in the past accused Ned Nwoko of abandoning him and his mother right from his childhood so he’s dropping his name ‘Ned Nwoko’.
However, police have arrested him and his sister known as Love Israel (her accomplice) in Mbiama, Portharcourt, Rivers State.
