Members of Rapid Action Battalion arrested five members of an international cheating gang, including three Nigerians, from different parts of the city on Tuesday night.
Based on a complaint, a team of the elite force conducted separate drives and arrested two Bangladeshis – Mohammad Ali, 30, and Manjur Ahmed, 31 – and the three Nigerians – Izuchew Frankin, 30, Obi Hechey, 34, and Ik Fleask, 35, said sources at RAB-2 headquarters.
The arrestees used to become friends with Bangladeshi nationals through Facebook and other social media platforms. Later, they offered them expensive gifts saying a certain courier company will reach the gifts to them.
In the meantime, they used to phone the victims in the name of courier company and tell them that they got a expensive gift for which they have to pay a certain amount of money.
The three Nigerians came to Bangladesh on August 13, 2013 and started clothes trading in collaboration with the two arrested Bangladeshis, added the sources.
