The State Po­lice Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer (PPRO), DSP Ebere Amaraizu, who con­firmed the ar­rest in a state­ment on Fri­day, said Okafor was picked at an ATM point at Ebeano Hous­ing Es­tate Branch fol­low­ing an alarm raised by a fe­male vic­tim con­cern­ing an al­leged fraud­u­lent ex­change of her ATM card with a fake one.

Amaraizu said after Okafor al­legedly ex­changed the ATM card with his fake one, es­caped be­fore the sus­pect raised the alarm which at­tracted se­cu­rity op­er­a­tives on duty at the bank who moved in quickly and ar­rested him.

Ac­cord­ing to the PPRO, the sus­pect who was ap­pre­hended on Oc­to­ber 8 is help­ing the op­er­a­tives in their in­ves­ti­ga­tions into his al­leged ne­far­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties.
