An American grandmother who flew to Nigeria to marry a man she met on Facebook was the victim of a scam and was held captive in a hotel room for more than a year and forced to become a scammer herself.

By the time the 64-year-old retired civil servant from Washington was freed by police she had been swindled out of her monthly pension and $48,000 in savings and become a coerced confidence trickster in a scam that drew in friends and contacts.

“She flew across the world in search of love and marriage,” Frank Mba, a police spokesman, said. “There was so much she had not bargained for.”

During 15 months allegedly under the control of Chukwuebuka Kasi Obiaku, 34, who secured her trust
