Fake EFCC Official Nabbed For Trying To Dupe Adamawa Assembly Majority Leader
There is no excuse for a crime, not even ignorance.
For Simon Bolki, who claimed to be a university graduate, he said lack of job forced him into the act.
He approached the Adamawa House of Assembly Majority Leader, Hassan Barguma, in his office with a fake EFCC identity card claiming to be from the Intelligence Unit of the commission.
But that was to be his last attempt.
“When I called the name of my brother working with the EFCC in Abuja and other names of EFCC officials I know, he said he didn’t know them.
“I then called my brother in EFCC and liked them together while placing the phone on speaker,” he said.
Barguma said during the chat between his brother and the suspect, the suspect could not provide convincing answers.
“My brother then pronounced him as an impostor and from there he started pleading with me.
“He said he was a university graduate and that it was lack of job that pushed him into the act.
“I had to intervene to prevent people from lynching him while we awaited the arrival of police who took him to the state CID,” he said.
The Acting Public Relations Officer of the Police Command in Adamawa, Deputy Superintendent of Police Habibu Musa, confirmed the incident.
“We have so far arrested two suspects and investigation is ongoing,” Musa said.
