The police in Lagos State have arrested two men for attempting to dupe a woman of N600,000 after already duping her N90,000.

The command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the arrest on his Twitter handle monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday.

He identified the arrested suspects as Uche Awaize (45) and Osadebe Aigbe (35).

He wrote: “Yesterday at about 3:50pm, a bank cashier noticed that a 64-year-old customer was fidgety, receiving repeated calls and was in a hurry to withdraw N600,000.

“The cashier asked what the problem was and the woman said she would die if she talked.

“Police officers from Ogudu Division were quickly contacted.

“Of the three fraudsters waiting outside, two were arrested while the third suspect bolted.”

Hundeyin said that preliminary investigation revealed that the suspects had first collected N90,000 from the woman, noting that effort was on to arrest the other gang member. (NAN)
