In Idumota Police arrests three suspected fraudsters



Officers of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) made an arrest of three fraudsters in Idumota, Lagos, while they were holding an uncooperative victim hostage.

The victim who is a 23-year-old lady (name withheld), was heading to Iyana Oworo from Gerard Road Ikoyi. She boarded the suspects’ Volkswagen Vento salon car with registration number BDG 513 EJ but was forcibly taken to Idumota.

The three suspects, Austin Okoro ‘m’ aged 47, ring leader, Godwin Asezour ‘m’ aged 54, and Susan Elohor ‘f’ aged 42, while on the diversion, attempted to swindle their victim by ostensibly introducing her to their alleged money-doubling business.

The victim, however, sighted an RRS patrol team at Idumota and successfully raised the alarm to their hearing, which led to the prompt arrest of the suspects.

The suspects are already in court following the completion of the investigation by the CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi-led RRS.
