…Claims Buhari Nominated Him As Chief Of Army Staff

Operatives of the Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), have arrested one Bolarinwa Oluwasegun, a fake Army General, for an alleged N270 million fraud.

The suspect, who posed as a General in the Nigerian Army, allegedly made false representations to the complainant, Kodef Clearing Resources, that President, Muhammadu Buhari, had shortlisted him and one other to be appointed as the Chief of Army Staff, COAS, and that he needed a short grant “to press and process the appointment.”

He 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.

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.

The man and his guns.

A statement by the image maker of the anti-corruption ombudsman, Wilson Uwujaren, said the suspect in his bid to defraud the victim, also allegedly forged several documents and the signature of the President

The statement said Oluwasegun was arrested at his house in the Alagbado area of Lagos State on Wednesday, January 12, 2022.

Uwujaren said that upon his arrest, six pump action guns, three cartridge bullets, a swagger stick and several forged documents were recovered from Oluwasegun, adding that the suspect would be charged to court at the end of investigations.
