The Ilorin Zonal Command of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) has arrested one Akogun Rasheed Usman, an alleged fraudster, who has been posing as an officer of the commission and defrauding victims on the pretext that he could help them procure soft-landing regarding their cases with the commission.
The bubble burst for the scammer when the Command received intelligence regarding his criminal activities.
Usman who claimed to be an officer of the EFCC reportedly obtained money to the tune of N.5m from one Mrs. Khadizah Abdullahi, a parent of two of the suspects held in custody by the Commission over offences bordering on internet fraud.
The intel, which was found to be credible led to the arrest of the suspect, who claimed to be a staff at the Library Department of the Kwara State College of Education, Oro.
The suspect was apprehended on Thursday, March 27, 2024 at Taiwo-Oke area, Ilorin, the state capital.
