A fake Army General, Bolarinwa Oluwasegun, has been arrested by The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos Zonal Command for N270 million fraud.

According to the anti graft agency, the suspect 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.”

EFCC said:

“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.”

Oluwasegun was arrested at his residence in 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 suspect will be charged to court as soon as investigations have been concluded.
