Woman Duping Lagosians In Banks Using Her Pregnancy

Few days back, the story of a lady who used her “pregnancy” to defraud sympathetic Lagosians in banks,went viral..

Now she has been nabbed.

A victim who fell for her story, Fancy Chikeluba wrote on Facebook:
When i read linda ikeji blog this evening about this pregnant woman that fake labor to collect money from people.
I felt very bad bcos i was a victim.
On 23rd of March 2017 this pregnant lady walked into the banking hall ,i noticed her wit her hand on her waist.she was in front of me all of a sudden water started flowing down n she was crying. 
I stood up to help and pple came arnd and i asked her why she was at the bank knowing her state,she told me her husband n sister inlaw abandond her at the hospital and that the hospital referd her to LUTH bcos of her case that requires operation. 
Now the question i asked her was ‘why was she at the bank ‘,she said she came to withdraw from the ATM and the ATM refusd to pay her due to BVM issue and her Bank was ECO BANK and she came to FCMB . 
I ask my branch manager to assist with the car and pple were helping this pregnant woman . 
I gave this woman money and some other pple contributed and my branch manager got a taxi for her to take her to LUTH 
God Nigeria Na wa !! Na wa ..
Nwanyi e le mu MUGU chaii
Abeg see woman wen dey labor …….i hope say this pregnancy na real .”
Now, the lady has been identified as Nkem Nwachukwu. One Okey Nwangwu took to his Facbook page to disclose that lady likes operating in the Lekki/Ajah area of Lagos, extorting money from sympathetic and unsuspecting Lagosians. She has however been arrested.

He wrote;
“This same woman by name Nkem Nwachukwu goes about into various banks in Lekki/Ajah axis of Lagos extorting monies from sympathetic Lagosians by seeking sympathy as her water is broken and entering labour etc. 
She will attract sympathizers who she will mention LUTH as her hospital, but after collecting N20,000 or so as the hospital initial bill, the office will arrange a taxi for her and she will order the taxi driver to another direction and alight and will not get to her LUTH. 
This seems a new strategy of obtaining by tricks with pregnancy.”
