Fake EFCC Operative Arrested in Lagos

Emeka Emmanuel, a fake Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) operative has been arrested in Lagos.

He was arrested on 14 September, 2019 by men of the Ojo Police Station who acted on credible intelligence.

The suspect, 29, was in possession of a fake EFCC ID card which he uses in parading himself as an EFCC operative. He was also found operating illegal medical facility in his residence. Other items recovered from him include medical equipment and fake certificates.

He has duped innocent citizens under the pretence of providing them employment with the EFCC as operatives.

One Mr Olaposi Semiu, a resident of Agbara, Lagos told Police Investigators that the suspect collected the sum of N51,000 from him over a month ago with a promise of securing employment for his son as an EFCC operative.

The suspect has confessed to the crime, as Lagos Police spokesperson, DSP Bala Elkana advised members of the public, especially job seekers to be mindful of the activities of such job scammers in order not to fall prey of their antics. Story by DEDEIGBO AYODEJI
