Cambodia Police Arrest Two Nigerians Over Online Scam

Two Nigerians, Kingsley Obinna Nweazura and Emma Eke Onyechere, have been arrested by the Anti-Cyber Crime department of the Cambodia Police over an online scam.

The suspects were arrested in Phnom Penh for allegedly duping several people on social media by using false identities.  

The National Police Chief, General Lieutenant Neth Savoen, said the suspects were arrested after the police received several complaints from some of their victims. 

The suspects have been reportedly sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court for legal action.

Meanwhile, the director of the Anti Cyber Crime department has reminded citizens to be careful when using social media sites.

"Please don't accept friend requests from people that you don't know, and don't trust any scammer who claims to send stuff from overseas and they demand the shipping fee in advance," he stated.

Nigerian nationals have a history of running afoul of the law in the Asian country.
