The Enugu State Police Command has arrested a suspected fake currency note producer.
According to a statement Sunday by the Command’s spokesman, SP Ebere Amaraizu, the suspect, one Collins Oputa, was arrested on July 26.
The police spokesman said the feat was accomplished by police operatives of the Ogui Police Division of the Command after a tip off, Vanguard writes.
“Oputa, who claimed that he is a native of Ohaji community in Imo State but residing at 4 Fatimo Close in Ijegun, Lagos State, was nabbed in Lagos.
“His arrest followed a manhunt initiated based on intelligence information gathered on his alleged criminal activities of producing and giving the fake currency naira notes to his agents for circulation,” he said.
Amaraizu said that the suspect had been helping police operatives in their investigation in relation to his alleged criminal activities with his cohorts.
And yeah, the suspect, Oputa, blamed the situation of his alleged involvement in the illicit act on Satan.
Doubt much the police are buying it though…
