The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Lagos Zonal Command, said it has arrested one Bolarinwa Oluwasegun, a fake Army General, for N270 million fraud.

 

The EFCC, in a statement on Thursday, said the suspect allegedly made false representations to the complainant, Kodef Clearing Resources, that the President, President Muhammadu Buhari, had shortlisted him and one other to be appointed as the Chief of Army Staff, COAS, and that he needed a short grant “to press and process the appointment.”

“He also allegedly forged a letter of appointment as COAS purportedly signed by the President and showed the same to the victim to further prove his claim,” the anti-graft agency said.

The statement said Oluwasegun was arrested at his house in the Alagbado area of Lagos State on Wednesday, January 12, 2022.Uwujaren said that upon his arrest, six pump action guns, three cartridge bullets, a swagger stick and several forged documents were recovered from Oluwasegun, adding that the suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigations have been concluded.
