The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Makurdi Zonal Office has arrested one Patience Simon Robert, an impostor who, while posing as an officer of the EFCC, allegedly defrauded many people with propositions of employment in the EFCC and Nigeria Customs Service.
EFCC Spokesperson Wilson Uwujaren who disclosed this yesterday in Abuja added that Patience was arrested following a complaint by a victim whom he collected N1.5million from under the pretext of helping to secure jobs for his children in the EFCC.
Uwujaren maintained that the complainant equally revealed that the suspect tricked his younger brother to part with the sum of N300,000 after promising to get his children employed in the Nigeria Customs Service.
He continued: “Investigation reveals that suspect had severally been arrested for impersonation and fraud by the Nigeria Police and other agencies. It was discovered that she had been charged to a Magistrate Court in Minna, Niger State for impersonation and obtaining money under false pretence.
“She allegedly obtained over N11million from several victims with propositions of job offers in various agencies while parading herself as a staff of the EFCC.
“The suspect also defrauded another victim in Abuja to the tune of N4.5 million while posing as ‘Director of Civil Intelligence’ in EFCC.”
The Spokesperson further disclosed that the suspect would be charged to Court as soon investigation is concluded.
