A filmmaker in Abuja identified as Richard Sylvanus has been arrested by the Federal Capital Territory Police Command for alleged impersonation.

The suspect was said to have opened YouTube and Gmail accounts, impersonating a Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels, and defrauding people to the tune of N1m.

A source familiar with the case said Daniels’ lawyer reported the matter to the police which led to the arrest of the suspect.

The FCT police spokesperson, DSP Josephine Adeh, confirmed the arrest, adding that the matter was under investigation.


She said;

“Sylvanus is in our custody. The police swung into action after getting a tip-off. He defrauded unsuspecting members of the public with an email,, and a Youtube account he opened to impersonate Regina Daniels.

“There is no relationship between the movie star and the Gmail and Youtube accounts used in perpetrating these criminal acts.

“Members of the public are, therefore, urged to take note and not fall victim to such snares as many other criminal ventures similar to this may be in existence. The matter is under diligent investigation.”
