Some visiting Africans have received a taste of Antigua and Barbuda in a negative way after they fell victim to a thief.
The Police reportedly are investigating the incident which left two Nigerian nationals out of almost US$3,000.
Reports are that a Fort Road man took the visitors to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), where they reported that an unknown man had stolen US$2,800 from them.
Further reports are that the visitors — a male and female — were searching for a place to rent and were being assisted by an unknown man whom they met on Fort Road.
He was supposedly driving a white vehicle.
The Nigerian male reportedly was holding the pair’s money in a plastic bag, which he handed over to the unknown man who promised to pay for a place for them to rent.
He, however, later sped off with the money and did not return.
This offence reportedly occurred at about 8 p.m. on January 3 at Fort Road.
Locals who heard of these allegations tell us they find the story very hard to believe.
