SHARE
The Rivers State Police Command have arrested two men who were parading themselves as Officers Of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) at Igwuruta, Rivers state.
The Duo who operated under the Aliases of Commander Kenneth Obunwa and officer Oluwagbenga are to appear in court soon.
Obunwa hails from Rivers State, while Abe hails from Ijero-Ekiti in Ekiti State.
The state Commander of SARS, Akin Fakorode, stated that the suspects were arrested after the command received a distress call around 7 a.m. on Tuesday.
He said:
“F-SARS received a distress call that Obunwa and Abe, who claimed to be operatives of F-SARS, accosted Pastor Finan and his younger brother and subjected them to thorough search in their compound at Igwuruta, with undisclosed sum of money extorted from them.
The suspects impersonated as operatives of F-SARS and they have been doing it for a while. We quickly responded to the distress call, because the members of the public adequately utilized the distress lines that we gave.
We traced the impersonators and we arrested them. We have a lot of miscreants who are impersonating security agents, especially F-SARS, thereby harassing, intimidating and extorting money from innocent members of the public, who ought to be very vigilant.”
