The Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested one Bolarinwa Oluwasegun, a fake Army General, for an alleged N270 million fraud.

 

The suspect, who posed as a General in the Nigerian Army, allegedly made false representations to the complainant, Kodef Clearing Resources, that President, Muhammadu Buhari, had shortlisted him and one other to be appointed as the Chief of Army Staff, COAS, and that he needed a short grant “to press and process the appointment.”

He also allegedly forged a letter of appointment as COAS purportedly signed by the President and showed the same to the victim to further prove his claim.
