George Osagie, 51 and Makinde Kudus, 28, have been arrested by the Lagos State police after duping many people of millions of Naira with fake dollars.
The suspects who confessed that they were trained as fraudsters, revealed that once they are able to stir the greed in any person, such a person becomes an easy prey.
They were recently arrested at the popular Nglasia Hotel, Ilasa, Lagos. The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, said that during interrogation, they confessed that it was their means of livelihood and they had duped many people because of their greed and foolishness.
He said that on further investigation, the police discovered that the gang had duped one Victoria Awoniyi of the sum of N5m, Taiwo Kayode, N300,000, Adebisi Adebayo, N500,000 and many other victims.
The suspects noted that some of the victims believed that they can double their money with the dollars they were shown, but do not ask where they got the dollars from and why they (the suspects) wanted to help them double their money instead of doing so for their own relations.
