A fraudster who has been taking advantage of unsuspecting victims claiming to be a rep for Wizkid and EME has finally been arrested by the police.
A statement released Tuesday night, and made available to TheNET, says An EME impostor is currently in police custody. He was handed over to the police by his latest victim – Muyiwa. Muyiwa also known as ?Origin? started transactions with the impostor, only to discover he was being duped and quickly handed him over to the police.
Wizkid was recently invited to the Zone 2 Command of the Nigeria Police Force, Onikan, Lagos as part of the force?s on-going investigations in a case with some students from the University of Lagos, who had been swindled by the fraudster.
EME label head, Banky W who says he?s also been a victim impersonation, says the label is putting all structures in place, while working with relevant authorities to make sure the trend is put to a stop.
?This is not a unique problem to EME or its acts, but a serious challenge to most major labels/artists as well as the fans and event organizers,? he added. The label says the Police will still apprehend more fraudsters.
