Fake AIG caught with 11 ATM cards, 10 cheque books in Abuja
A fake AIG who had 11 ATM cards, 10 cheque books on him, has been arrested at a bank in Kubwa, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory.
Olawale Olatunji, the 59-year-old man posing as a retired Assistant Inspector-General of Police, was paraded in Abuja on Wednesday by the FCT Commissioner of Police, Bala Ciroma, who disclosed that the fake AIG has been defrauding unsuspecting members of the public by promising to assist them in getting contracts at the Police Airwing department.
The police boss said;
“On December 10, 2018, Police operatives from the Command arrested Olatunji who has been parading himself as a retired AIG.
“The suspect had under the same pretext defrauded unsuspecting members of the public by offering to help them secure contracts at the Police Air Wing.
“In the course of the investigation, fake Police Air Wing receipts, fake contract documents, 11 ATM cards, 10 checkbooks and letter headed papers of different companies were recovered from him as exhibits.”
The suspect who asked the police to charge him to court, noting that he was not a criminal, admitted ownership of the exhibits including the fake Police Air Wing receipts, but denied defrauding people.
“A pastor introduced me to someone as a retired AIG, but I didn’t defraud anyone. The ATM cards and checkbooks were for my bank accounts which were opened for my business with different companies,” he claimed.
