A scam artist who posed as the son of President Muhammadu Buhari so as to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians with the promises of giving them lucrative contracts from the government, has been arrested by operatives of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

A statement from the FCT SARS say the suspect has continuously promised to secure contracts for his victims from the president, saying he had made billions of naira through this illicit venture.

He was also dropping names of top politicians and businessmen to convince his victims, often wielding superimposed photos of himself with the president and other top politicians.

The statement reads:

“He mostly approached big contractors, who were desperate to see the president or any of the governors. He would put fake calls across to the supposed politicians in the presence of his victims and convince them to book appointments.

From there, he would demand that the politician’s security officials needed to be settled with huge amounts of money before the contractor would be granted audience with the president or the governor.”

But the fake president's son ran into troubled waters when a duped contractor, after waiting for many weeks without getting to see the president as promised by the hoodlum, reported his ordeal to the police, complaining that after collecting lots of money from him, the scammer was yet to take him to the president.

To the surprise of the police operatives, the suspect turned out to be a criminal who has been on their wanted list for similar offenses in the past.

The Police Public Relations Officer for the FCT command, Anjuguri Manzah, confirmed the story, saying that acting on a tipoff, SARS operatives arrested the suspect on Saturday, July 4, at about 2 am.

“The truth is that the suspect had defrauded so many people. To perfect his act, he paraded himself as the son of the president. Three Mercedez Benz and one Peugeot 406 cars were recovered from him as exhibits."
