Odama said the suspect later took a step further by luring the victim to fly into Nigeria on January 9, 2023, through the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos.

According to him, the victim flew into Ilorin the next day and was received by the suspect before he was arrested based on actionable intelligence.

He said further that the necessary authorities have been contacted for appropriate action.

The police also claimed to have moved the woman to an undisclosed location pending her return to the United States.
