32-year-old David Ujma Uba, has been arrested by Indian Police for defrauding 20 people of Rs 3 crore (about N16.55m) in kidney donation scam.

The Nigerian national who travelled to India on a tourist visa in 2013, created a fake hospital website and issued an advertisement, promising to help his victims secure kidney donations.

His victims paid various sums into his bank account,  but got nothing from. However he ran out of luck after his victims filed a complaint with Kolkata cyber crime police in April.

Uba was traced through his phone’s call record details, and arrested at his friend’s place in Nagenahalli Dinne near Kothanur.
