Fake NSCDC Officials

The suspects, who claimed to be NSCDC officers on a national assignment from Abuja, were alleged to be going round petrol stations in Ilorin, the state capital, collecting money before they were arrested on Wednesday.

A statement issued by the spokesman of the command, Afolabi Babawale, read;

“On March 8, 2022, around 2.22pm, our anti-vandal unit, led by ACC Yusuf Olatunji, got an intelligence report that some group of men, who put on the uniform of civil defence, were going around filling stations in the Ilorin metropolis, claiming to be members of the national task force on an assignment from Abuja. After meeting the managers of the petrol stations, they would collect money from them, as the petrol sellers thought that they were officers of the NSCDC.”

Babawale identified the suspects as Saheed Adedayo (37), Muritala Oloruntoyin (40), Emmanuel Ferife (45), Abiodun Oluseun (44) and Isaac Aluko (43).

“Luck, however, ran out on them when they got to a filling station at the Amilegbe area of Ilorin as the office of the anti-vandal unit was contacted by the management of the petrol station. The unit’s patrol team later swung into action and the five suspects were arrested”.
