A 59-year-old identified as Olawale Olatunji, ran out out of luck as he was caught in Abuja parading himself as the Assistant Inspector General of Police.
Among other items caught with him were Ten cheque books and eleven ATM Cards. The FCT Commissioner who paraded the suspect on Wednesday, 19 December, revealed that suspect paraded himself as a AIG so to defraud unsuspecting members of the public by promising to assist them to get contracts at the Police Air Wing Department.
The commissioner said;
“On December 10, 2018, police operatives from the command arrested Olatunji, who had been parading himself as a retired AIG. The suspect had under the same pretext defrauded unsuspecting members of the public by offering to help them secure contracts at the Police Air Wing. In the course of investigation, fake Police Air Wing receipts, fake contract documents, 11 ATM cards, 10 chequebooks and letterheads of different companies were recovered from him as exhibits.”
The suspect, during interrogation, said;
“A pastor introduced me to someone as a retired AIG, but I didn’t defraud anyone. The ATM cards and chequebooks are for my bank accounts, which were opened for my business with different companies,”
