- Multitudes swindled as hundreds of fake registration busted
Police in Lagos State have arrested five suspects who are staff of a fake Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) registration centre in the State.
It was gathered that hundreds of citizens have fallen prey to the well organised syndicate with an office situated at Jobi Fele Way, Alausa Business District, Alausa, Ikeja, through fake CAC registration.
Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos Police Command busted the Centre following credible intelligence, painstaking background check, and proper verification, the spokesperson of the Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin said in a statement on Thursday.
According to him, several forged CAC documents, a Toyota Sienna, and a Toyota Matrix used as makeshift offices for the syndicate’s nefarious transactions were recovered by the operatives, who were led by the Commander RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi.
“Five suspects manning the centre were equally arrested for forgery and impersonating CAC officials. Those arrested include Gloria Ukaegbu aged 28, Omolere Kayode aged 30, Taiwo Ajayi aged 34, Nwachukwu Brenda aged 27 and Oluwatomisin Adebisi aged 25,” Hundeyin added.
The State Criminal Investigations Department, Panti is to handle further investigations and eventual prosecution of the matter and the suspects following the direction of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi.
