Fake Customs CG arrested over recruitment scam

In a statement posted on the official X handle of the NCS by Spokesperson, CSC Abdullahi Maiwada revealed that the suspect’s arrest was made possible through intelligence gathered by the Customs Police Unit.


According to Maiwada, the suspect fraudulently lured numerous unsuspecting citizens to pay him money for the issuance of job appointment letters thereby extorting over N1 million from them.


The statement added that Ibrahim confessed to his involvement in the fraudulent act and mentioned accomplices in the operation, which prompted further investigation to arrest and prosecute his accomplices.
