Police nab 3 suspected fraudsters in Abuja, destroy 12 shrines
Three persons suspected to be fraudsters have been arrested by the police in Life Camp, Abuja, after allegedly duping their victims.
A police source who spoke with our reporter said the suspects paraded themselves as passengers and drivers to pick their victims along the way and subsequently deceived them about getting rich overnight. He said the suspects would take their victims to a shrine to swear an oath never to tell anyone. He added that seven cars, believed to be stolen, were also recovered from the suspects.
“We destroyed 12 shrines at Dakibiyu, along Jabi road used by the suspects to perpetuate their criminal acts. This also serves as a warning to people who might want to engage in such crime.”
In another development, one Joseph Agani was arrested over the theft of six water heaters from an uncompleted building located close to Mr. Biggs, Jabi, Abuja, owned by one Andika Inuwa.
Our source said the suspect was caught by Williams Dauda and Yusuf Shaibu of Dakibiyu, Jabi who reported him to the police. He said the suspects confessed to have stolen the water heaters to make ends meet. The police officer said the suspect would soon be charged to court.
