Abia Police Arrest Three Impersonating EFCC Operatives for Robbing MOUAU Students
The fake EFCC operatives dispossessed some of the students of their phones and forced them to transfer N120,000 to the assailants’ bank accounts, Abia Police Command spokesperson, ASP Maureen Chinaka, stated in Umuahia on Saturday.
The Abia Command spokesperson said operatives were deployed to the institution immediately information was received last Tuesday that the four-man gang in EFCC uniforms were robbing the students at their residence.
Chinaka added that the police visited the crime scene and arrested three of the robbers at the Man-O-War base in MOUAU.
She added that the police also recovered six stolen phones and the operational tricycle of the robbers from them.
Also recovered from the robbers were four EFCC jackets, two EFCC ID cards, one toy gun and four EFCC search warrants.
Investigations into the matter are still in progress.
“Abia people are advised to be security-sensitive and to report any suspicious activity to the police immediately whether the suspect is in uniform or not,’’ she stated.
