Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Monday said
it had arrested a 28-year-old man wanted in connection with the death
of an Australian woman, Jette Jacobs, and for defrauding her of $90,000
in an online dating scam.

According to the agency, Orowo Jesse Omokoh was arrested on January 28 in Nigeria, without stating where exactly.

The
graduate, who attended the University of Ibadan, in the southwest of
the country, will be brought before court for extradition proceedings, a
spokesman said.

The suspect allegedly met the 67 year old Aussie
on a dating site and struck a sizzling romantic affair that
necessitated him moving to Johannesburg in 2013 to link up with his
lover.

Omokoh allegedly arrived in Johannesburg, South Africa on
February 4, 2013, to meet with Jacob who had been in Johannesburg since
November 2012.

Five days after Omokoh arrived and took up
residence with her, Jacob was found dead in her apartment with some of
her valuables missing.

After the incident, Omokoh reportedly fled South Africa and returned to Nigeria.
“The
South African police, which is investigating the mysterious death, are
suspicious that Omokoh has a hand in the demise of Jacobs,” the EFCC
said.

The organisation, which investigates money-laundering and
online scams, said Australian Federal Police informed officers in March
that Omokoh had allegedly defrauded Jacobs of $90,000.

Jacobs, a
grandmother from Western Australia, reportedly sent tens of thousands of
dollars to Nigeria during her four-year “romance” with a man known as
“Jesse”, according to Australian media.
The 67-year-old is said to have previously met him in Johannesburg in 2010 without incident.

Her
body was found on February 9. The EFCC said Omokoh had given “useful”
information and “efforts are on to track his accomplices”.
