Despite being swindled of over $1,000, an American citizen, Vonapolouis Moss, has said she will love to return to Nigeria with her family.
Moss was allegedly defrauded by one Awoleye Oluwatofunmi, a suspected internet fraudster, who was arrested and paraded by the operatives of the Kwara State Police Command on Friday.
The victim broke her silence over the incident while speaking with Daily Trust on Sunday.
According to the mother of one, the incident has not dampened her love for the country.
She said, “This is my first time in Nigeria and I have met beautiful hearts and beautiful black faces since my arrival.

“I am somebody with a very good heart also, and despite the incident, I still love to come back to Nigeria with my family.
“The authorities should let him (suspect) go.”
Spokesperson of the Kwara State Police Command, Ajayi Okasanmi, said the suspect, via TikTok, presented himself to Moss as an American named Howard Adam and extorted about $1,000 from her.
He said, “The suspect lured the victim to fly into Nigeria on January 9, 2023, through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos after which she flew into Ilorin the next day and was received by the suspect.
“The suspect also deceitfully took an unspecified amount of dollars from the victim before she was rescued by police operatives.
“The necessary authorities have been contacted for appropriate action.”
