The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) says its operatives attached to Lagos Zonal Command have arrested a fake Army General, Bolarinwa Oluwasegun, over an alleged N270m fraud.

spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement, said the suspect, who posed as an Army General, made false representations to the complainant, Kodef Clearing Resources, that President Muhammadu Buhari had shortlisted him to be appointed as Chief of Army Staff.

He said the suspect told the complainant that he needed a short grant “to press and process the appointment”, and also allegedly forged a letter of appointment as COAS purportedly signed by the president and showed the same to the victim to further prove his claim.

Uwujaren said: “In the said letter, he claimed that he needed to pay a certain amount of money into the coffers of the Federal Government of Nigeria, as part of the requirements for the appointment as COAS.


“Oluwasegun, in his bid to defraud the victim, also allegedly forged several documents and the signature of the President. He was arrested at his house in the Alagbado area of Lagos State on Wednesday, January 12, 2022.

“Upon his arrest, six pump action guns, three cartridge bullets, a swagger stick and several forged documents were recovered from him.”

The spokesman said the suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
