Police arrest ‘spirit’ over N22m fraud

The Borno State Police Command has arrested a fraud suspect who disguises himself as a spirit claiming to possess powers to make his victim rich.

The Commissioner of Police (CP), Abdu Umar, on Friday, said nemesis caught up with the suspect, a member of a three-man gang, after deceiving one Bukar Muhammed and withdrew N22 million from his bank account.

“They manipulated and directed him to go and drop his Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card and the pin number at a certain location.

“The victim complied and the suspects withdrew the sum of N22 million from his account domiciled at TAJ Bank Plc,” Umar said.

The CP said that in the course of the investigation, the suspect was trailed and arrested in February, adding that he later confessed to the crime and other similar offences.

Umar added that efforts to arrest the two other accomplices have been intensified.
