The Jigawa State Police Command has arrested a 25-year-old man, Abubakar Ibrahim, for defrauding his friend of N1,942,000 under the pretense of exchanging the amount for United States Dollars (USD).

Police spokesperson DSP Lawan Shiisu Adam confirmed the arrest in a statement issued to DAILY POST. According to the statement, Ibrahim Musa, a 20-year-old resident of Shagari Quarters, reported the incident to Hadejia 'A' Division on May 20, 2024. Musa alleged that about a month ago, Abubakar Ibrahim, from Gandun Sarki Quarters, duped him of N1,942,000 with the promise of providing the equivalent in USD.

Upon receiving the report, detectives from Hadejia 'A' Division swiftly acted, leading to Ibrahim's arrest. The suspect was then transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in Dutse for further investigation.

DSP Shiisu revealed that during interrogation at SCID Dutse, Abubakar Ibrahim confessed to the crime. He also implicated two accomplices, Yahuza Mukthar from Kurna Quarters in Dala LGA, Kano State, and Suleiman Yahaya, who were subsequently arrested.

A search of the suspects' possessions uncovered thirty-two counterfeit 100 USD bills, a counterfeit 1,000 naira note, and various items of clothing. All the suspects confessed to the charges against them and will be prosecuted in court.

The Jigawa State Police Command continues to warn residents against engaging in unofficial currency exchanges to avoid falling victim to similar scams.
