“I think you have gone around yourself and see some funny stuffs they put in place. This is not a theatre place. This is a place for organised crime, where fraudsters use to deceive innocent citizens and part with large sums of money. I have gotten a lot of report about them and we have been monitoring them and we have successfully arrested two of them,” During the raid, two members of the group were arrested.Narrating his experience in the hands of the fraudsters, one of the victim said:
“When I got inside, they were in the dark and they were talking to me saying that they wanted to make me the richest person in this country. In this wise, I asked them what my next action should be. They said that they will cut down and Iroko tree, calve a box for me and that I will have to look for a house where nobody will enter and put it there. They said I will have to put 40 million Naira there and that it will be converted to dollars”.Photo credit: Channels TV
