“Luck ran out of him on Friday, Nov. 23, when he claimed to be an AIG of Police and Force Secretary who has an office in the Police Force Headquarters Abuja.

“He offered to provide nine slots – five Cadet ASPs, and four Cadet Inspectors to an unsuspecting business man.

“He requested for N482, 500 for each of the cadet ASPs slot and N222,000 for each of Cadet Inspectors slot.

“On interrogation, he confessed to have been in the business for about five years and have duped unspecified number of unsuspecting law-abiding citizens,” NAN quoted him as saying.

Nwawe also paraded another suspect – Surajo Muhammad, a native of Arkila area of the state, who specialized in car theft.
