The impostor who opened a Facebook account using the name of Prophet Er­nest Erowo with the intent of defrauding unsuspecting members of the public, was arrested at Ozoro in Isoko North local government area of the state.

Findings by The AU­THORITY indicated that the internet fraudster opened an account with the First Bank PLC in the name of Abada E. Best with account No. 3043867593.

The bank account was linked to the facebook ac­count of the cleric - Ernest Erowo, asking members of the public to pay in money to get spiritual help.
