Court orders arrest, 90 days detention of Lagos business woman

Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo of the federal high court in Abuja has granted the request of the Inspector General of Police IGP, Alkali Baba Usman to arrest and detain a Lagos  business woman, Mrs Min Ling for 90 days.

The ordered came following a complaint by the IGP that the woman allegedly  duped two London based business men to the tune of about N250M.
Justice Ekwo ruled that upon her arrest, Mrs Ling should  be kept in police  custody pending  investigation into the complaints of fraud against her.
The 90 days detention is to commence counting from the day of her arrest in any part of Nigeria or abroad.
The Judge granted the order  while delivering ruling in an ex-parte application filed by the Inspector General of Police .
In an affidavit evidence in support of the ex-parte motion, the police chief  stated that he received a petition from a Lagos based Spirit Law Firm on behalf of two London based business men, Demein Oluwagbemi and Ogunleye Temitope stating  that they have been defrauded to the tune of about N250M.

The Law firm said that the two London business men are Crypto currency traders dealing in Bitcoin transactions with the wanted woman who is their agent in Nigeria.

The firm deposed that the woman after defrauding them of the huge amount, relocated from her Ikeja known address and also changed her telephone number to cut them the victims off from having assess or contact to her.

Police authorities said  that preliminary investigation revealed that the woman had escaped to unknown destination alongside others involved in the alleged fraud.

Justice Ekwo after scrutinizing the affidavit evidence granted order to IGP to go after the suspect for her arrest and detention for 90 days only.
