Jailed fraudster operating from prison, strikes again as CCTV shows him shopping outside prison

An inmate of the Kuje Prison, Ifeanyi Ezenwa, who allegedly operates a fake bank alert fraud in jail, has been accused of defrauding an orthopaedic medical store of two wheel chairs and N50,000.
The police said he also scammed Elizade Motors into handing over a vehicle, which his accomplice, 43-year-old Dalhatu Yahaya (pictured either the car above) sold for N9m.

In a fresh allegation, the IRT which suspects that some prison officials might be colluding with the inmate, said Ezenwa left the prison, escorted by prison warders under the guise of going for medicals at the National Hospital.
The police said he stopped by at the orthopaedic medical store opposite the hospital to make some purchase. Ezenwa’s visit to the store was captured on CCTV, showing him in a flowing attire with a red cap and walking stick.
Two uniformed prison officials were seen behind him in the CCTV footage. According to the police, Ezenwa bought some medical items, which he paid for in cash.
But the following day, he allegedly called the store, identified himself as a chief and ordered two wheel chairs and two blood pressure machines, which he paid for with a fake bank alert with an excess of N50,000.

He was said to have later sent some of his boys to collect the goods and the extra N50,000. When the accomplice, who took delivery of the goods was later arrested, he took IRT operatives to the store where they handed over the CCTV footage.
An investigation report by the IRT headed by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, suggests that Ezenwa defrauded his victims by identifying himself as a traditional ruler living outside the country.
The police said fresh charges would be brought against Ezenwa, after investigation into the case, adding that plans were on to get the identities of prison officials aiding him.
