The Police Command in Edo State has announced the arrest of a 24-year-old man, whose identity has been withheld, for falsely representing himself as an official of the Kaduna State Government.

The arrest was confirmed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the command, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, during a briefing in Benin on Monday.

Nwabuzor revealed that the suspect had been engaging in fraudulent activities, deceiving unsuspecting members of the public by claiming to be a representative of the Kaduna State Government.

The spokesperson further disclosed that the arrest was made by operatives of the Anti-kidnapping and Cyber Crime Unit of the command, following a petition received from the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

According to Nwabuzor, the suspect was traced and apprehended along the Ubiaja-Uromi Road within the jurisdiction of the Edo State Police Command, utilizing technical intelligence methods.

Upon interrogation, the suspect confessed to exploiting the Kaduna State Government's identity to perpetrate fraudulent acts.

Nwabuzor also mentioned that a team of investigators from Kaduna is expected to arrive in Edo State, as officers from the Force Headquarters have been contacted to lead the investigative process. Subsequently, the suspect will be handed over to the team from Abuja for further investigation and possible prosecution.

The police spokesperson urged members of the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the appropriate authorities to curb such fraudulent acts in the society.
