According to JoyNews, a middle-aged man going by the name of Dodzi approached a particular family in Avenor, a suburb of the national capital, around a year ago and claimed to be the son of their brother who had been abandoned in Gabon.

The unassuming family was welcoming to him, welcomed him, and even helped generate money that was provided to him so that he could go back to Gabon and gather his other family members.

Dodzi, however, disappeared after accepting the secret sum, and the claimed family did not learn about him until his arrest. 

When he employed the same strategy on another family in Kokomlemle, his cover was uncovered, and he received his fill. He had told them he was their relative's son when in fact he had been abandoned in Lagos, Nigeria.

Members of the conned families tell how the suspect outsmarted them in a video that JoyNews released on Instagram.

One of the men described how his family's elders went so far as to perform some rituals for Dodzi in order to welcome him into the family after he claimed he couldn't sleep because the spirits of his ancestors were torturing him to return to his roots.

An elderly woman, who happens to be a member of the first family who fell victim to the suspect’s con, said she was at church when she heard of the arrest of a man whose offence appeared similar to what Dodzi had perpetrated on them before. She decided to rush to the scene to verify, only to meet the same man who they had accepted as their lost family member.
