RRS nabs Lagos fraud kingpin, syndicate members, recovers fake dollars
Men of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command, over the weekend, arrested one Segun Akuntola who is alleged to be the kingpin of a syndicate that specializes in defrauding innocent citizens within the State.
The suspect, popularly known as Okadigbo, was apprehended by the Decoy Team of the squad in his shrine at Ijora over his involvement in fraud perpetrated by the 4-man gang under him.
The fraud, which was perpetrated in Ikorodu about a year ago was supervised by an accomplice, Christian Odokor, 43. The syndicate had duped a lady known as Joy while in transit from Ikorodu towards Mile 12.
Preliminary investigation revealed that Okadigbo is the arrow head of several syndicates of fraudsters operating in different parts of Lagos State and some parts of Ogun State.
Another member of the team, Toyin Idebi, 25, said, “My main job was to act as someone who was carrying foreign currencies who didn’t know her destination. Though, those currencies were fake but I didn’t how Okadigbo got them.”
