DSS arrests fake FRSC staff

A 30-year-old fake staff of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has been arrested by the De­partment of Security ser­vice (DSS) and handed over to the agency in Anambra State.

The FRSC said on Thurs­day, in Awka, that the sus­pect, Raymond Aghaogwu, had been defrauding people for some time in the state.

Aghaogwu is from Eb­onyi State and a former staff of the agency, who was sacked in 2008.

Found in his possession, were FRSC uniforms – in­cluding head dress, jacket, trousers, safety boot and belt. In his reaction, the Sec­tor Commander, Sunday Ajayi, said that the suspect, who resided in Makurdi, Benue State, engaged in illegal driver’s licence pro­curement, recruitment of Special Marshals, procure­ment of auctioned vehicles and employment racketeer­ing.

Ajayi said the suspect, who had been under watch, in the past two years, spe­cialised in defrauding cler­gymen and other unsus­pecting individuals.

He said the suspect was nabbed by men of the DSS in Awka, after he went to withdraw some money paid into his account by a vic­tim.

However, he urged the people who had fallen vic­tim to his nefarious activi­ties to come to the Com­mand for consideration and further warned the public to be wary of whom they dealt with. Ajayi said: “Aghaogwu was a former staff of the FRSC but was dismissed in 2008, but has since his dismissal been defrauding people in the name of the FRSC, and this morning I am presenting him to the general public to disclaim all his activities”
