  • Police Arrest Fake Presidency Staff

    The FCT Police Command has arrested one 42 year old Abubakar Abdullahi, for allegedly impersonating as a staff of the State House under the office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

    Spokesman of the command, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, who made the disclosure in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, said that the suspect was arrested on Oct. 4 following a compliant by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR).

    Manzah said that his accomplice, a 24 year old Salishu Abdulrasheed, who assisted him to produce the forged document was also arrested in Kaduna state.

    He said that items recovered from the suspects include seven forged State House documents written to some government agencies and departments and a fake ONSA card which contains the suspect’s photograph.

    He said that following the arrest, the Commissioner of Police Monitoring and Mentoring Unit, carried out a discreet investigation that led to the recovery of some forged letters.

    Manzah said that the suspects would soon be charged to court.

    He advised government and private agencies to always do a thorough background check on documents, especially on those soliciting for any kind of favour.
