A 59-year-old man parading himself as a retired Assistant Inspector-General (fake AIG) of Nigeria Police at a bank in Kubwa area of Abuja has been arrested.

The suspect, who was identified as Olawale Olatunji was arrested with 11 ATM cards and 10 cheque books of different banks, which he claimed belonged to him.

Parading the suspect in Abuja on Wednesday, the FCT Commissioner of Police, Bala Ciroma, stated that Olatunji had posed as an AIG to defraud unsuspecting members of the public by promising to assist them in getting contracts at the Police Airwing department.

The statement by the Police on the case reads:

“On December 10, 2018, Police operatives from the Command arrested Olatunji who has been parading himself as a retired fake AIG.

“The suspect had under the same pretext defrauded unsuspecting members of the public by offering to help them secure contracts at the Police Air Wing.

“In the course of the investigation, fake Police Air Wing receipts, fake contract documents, 11 ATM cards, 10 checkbooks and letter headed papers of different companies were recovered from him as exhibits.”

The fake AIG however, admitted ownership of the exhibits including the fake Police Air Wing receipts, but he denied defrauding people.

“A pastor introduced me to someone as a retired AIG, but I didn’t defraud anyone. The ATM cards and checkbooks were for my bank accounts which were opened for my business with different companies,” he stated.
