The Lagos State Police have arrested two robbery suspects, who duped car dealers by issuing false bank cheques and sending fake bank alerts.

The suspects were arrested on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, after one of the victims, Ifeanyi, notified the police of the fraudulent act.

Until recently, the suspects have had a good run deceiving people with their fake transaction, Vanguard reports.

According to one of the victims who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the suspects were almost caught before their recent arrest.

“The last time it happened, the bank server was down so they just allowed them to go.”

“Later we found out that it was a fake alert, God has exposed them today.”

SP Dolapo Badmos, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the incident.

She said the suspects are currently in the police custody where they confessed to the crime.
