Fake police commissioner defrauds senator of N1.8m


One Ibrahim Mohammed has been arrested for parading himself as the Commissioner of Police in Zamfara State, CP Usman Nagogo.

Mohammed was paraded at the State Police Commissioner after he duped Senator Lawali Hassan Dan, representing Zamfara West of N1.8m.

The suspect posing as Nagogo deceived Senator Hassan Dan into giving him the said sum.

The CP said Mohammed had lied to the senator over phone that he gave him three slots for cadet ASP and three slots for cadet inspector asking the lawmaker to pay N2m for the slots.

In return, Senator Hassan Dan sent the suspect N1.6m via bank transfer while during the recent Sallah festival the victim transferred N200,000 to the alleged dupe’s account as gift.
