Police arrest robbery suspects for duping car dealers

The suspects presented a fake cheque and bank alert in order to deceive their victims. Luck ran out on them in their last encounter.

Suspected Fraudsters

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.

He said, “These same guys were close to being caught before today (Tuesday).”

“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.
