The Edo State Police Command has disclosed the arrest of a 24-year-old individual (identity withheld) for posing as an official of the Kaduna state government.

SP Chidi Nwabuzor, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the command, disclosed this information in Benin on Monday.

Nwabuzor explained that the suspect had been deceiving unsuspecting members of the public by falsely claiming to represent the Kaduna state government and engaging in fraudulent activities.

The spokesperson further stated that the suspect was apprehended by operatives of the Anti-kidnapping and Cyber Crime Unit of the command following a petition from the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

According to him, the suspect was geo-located to the jurisdiction of the police command in Edo and picked up by operatives along Ubiaja-Uromi Road using technical intelligence.

The suspect, Nwabuzor said, had confessed to using the profile of the Kaduna state government to defraud people.

“Meanwhile, officers attached to the Force Headquarters have been contacted and are leading an investigative team from Kaduna to Edo.

“The suspect will soon be handed over to the team from Abuja,” he said.
