He explained that the action led to the apprehension of the following suspects, Muhammed Ahmed Attahir, 31years and Abdulrahman Bashir Ahmad, 23years, both residents of Rabe Street, Bako ward, Yola South Local Government Area.

He noted that further investigation led to the arrest of Bello Suleiman, 59, a staff officer at the Fiscal Responsibility Commission, Yola, for aiding the crime.

The state image maker further disclosed that, “so far the culprits and their collaborators were alleged to have issued fake letters of appointment to over 10 victims, collecting ₦400,000 from each and were directed to a certain office at the Fiscal Responsibility Commission for their alleged data capture.
