The operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) attached to the Lagos State Police Command have apprehended suspects allegedly belonging to a fraud syndicate who specialize in duping unsuspecting members of the public.
According to the RRS Commander, ACP Tunji Disu, the suspects “usually pick unsuspecting passengers in their car before a lady belonging to the group would lure the victims with fake millions of dollars.
“The victims who fall prey of the fraud are promised a share of the money and subsequently taken to a native doctor where they are tricked and scammed of their belongings.”
The gang, however, met their waterloo when the gallant officers of the RRS swooped on them following a tip-off.
The suspects were arrested and items recovered from them include a briefcase filled with fake dollars, clay pots, charms and other items.
