“She isn’t meant to be arrested. What she did is bad but not illegal” – Former Emir of Kano’s son, Ashraf Sanusi, reacts to news of lady arrested for defrauding German man of $220,000 after promising to marry him

Ashraf Sanusi, son of former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has reacted to reports of a 21-year-old model, Atuonah Chioma, who was recently arrested and paraded in Lagos for allegedly defrauding a German man of $220,000 after promising to marry him but failing to fulfill her promise.


In a statement released, the Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU), Ikoyi, Lagos, said the suspect lured the victim on Instagram by allegedly feigning romantic intentions towards him, collected the money from him on the pretext she was going to marry him and failed to fulfill her promise. Chioma when interrogated confirmed she collected the money and used part of it to buy a 2-Bedroom Terrace apartment at Zara Estate, Ikota Villa, Lekki Phase II, while some of the funds were sent to support her mother’s business and to pay medical bills of her father.
