A 22-year-old lady with the name, Queen Benita on Facebook has been arrested and charged to court after she defrauded one Mr Chukwudi, 31, of his hard earned money of N8,500 Naira which was meant for Benita’s transport fare to Port-harcourt.
According to Mr Chukwudi, a Port-harcourt based businessman, Benita was apprehended through mobile phone tracking after she failed to pay him a visit at his apartment on the 10th of October, 2019, as agreed by both parties.
Queen Benita, however lured Mr Chukwudi to send the sum of N8,500 into her Access Bank Account as transport fare. Knowing fully well that she’s not going to pay Mr Chukwudi a visit, Benita shuts all forms of communication whereby blocking Mr Chukwudi from connecting her.
Ken Ukpai Esq, Mr Chukwudi’s lawyer said, the act was a calculated measure to defraud his client and in separate petitions to the force headquarters and the court, Barrister Ken further made a demand of N850,000 as a compensation for his client. He however noted that if his client as a well trained businessman invested the said money into his business since October 2019 up till now, he would have made more than the demanded amount.
At the time of filing this report, Queen Benita is still in their custody.
This has attracted some social media users attention, as some called her names, some others blamed the man for taking it too far while a few advised ladies to stop involving themselves in such act.
Reacting to the act, Innocent Ekene said “Everybody body is blaming the guy here saying how much did he hire a lawyer. The truth is that the money is nothing to the guy but to teach some girls like her a lesson, if you can’t go and visit him which was the reason why he sent that money, don’t ask for it. Let the truth be told. Many have been scam here in the name of send me transport money I will come and visit you. This is Yahoo Yahoo and defrauding in the highest level. Such girl should be persecuted for others to learn from it“
Ejimaku Ogu said, A lot of things will come into play…in this case..In contract,Mere promises to execute or perform a contract amounts to nullity because they are known as gratuitous contract..it is immaterial that consideration was paid….only the chats and calls…will determine if there was indeed a contract God help him….if the lady has a smart lawyer.
Godwin Anyanwu also said, Nigeria is advancing. This is a lesson to other girls. When she knew, she was not coming, why demanding for trans fare. She may go to jail.
