Luck has ran out of the so called SARs officer decieving inhabitants of some axis in Abuja.
A fake SARS officer identified as Tijani Omeka, who poses as Corporal Tijani, has been arrested in Abuja.
TheNation reports that the suspect, who is a taxi driver, operates within Mararaba , Area 1 axis of Abuja and extorts money from his victims.
The Deputy Commissioner in charge of Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department, DCP Salisu Gyadi-Gyadi, said Omeka was arrested after the police got a tip off from some of those he had defrauded. .
He said: “We recovered from him one black faz cap with the inscription SARS and a walkie-talkie.” .
However, on his part, Omeka said: “I found the walkie-talkie from SARS premises on the floor and the cap belongs to one of the Operatives. .
The policemen are my friends and they usually use my service whenever they go on operation because I’m a taxi driver. I travelled and the cap was with me for about three months because I was out of Abuja. .
I took my car for repairs with the intention of going to drop the cap and walkie-talkie after they fix my car but I was still at the mechanic when they arrested me.”
