Nigerian Man Arrested in India for Allegedly Defrauding 300 Women

Police Operatives belonging to the Uttar Pradesh Police in India on Friday announced that they had arrested a 38-year-old Nigerian man identified as Garuba Galumje, for allegedly tricking and scamming over 300 women under the pretense of a marriage proposal.

Galumje, who was residing in the Kishan Garh area of South Delhi, India at the time was reported to have a modus operandi where he would befriend women through social media and marriage websites; introducing himself as an Indian expatriate living in Canada. He was nabbed by operatives of the cybercrime police station in Noida, Uttar Pradesh state of India after a disgruntled woman reported him to the authorities.

Speaking on the arrest, Inspector Reeta Yadav, the leader of the Noida police state explained that Galumje was arrested after a woman from the Meerut district complained. She said that Galumba had approached her on Jeevansathi, an Indian marriage site, and introduced himself as Sanjay Singh, an Indo-Canadian. According to the woman, Galumba eventually earned her trust, then emotionally manipulated her into making multiple transfers to him before she eventually caught on.
