Three persons are currently in the net of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for falsely parading as staff of the Commission and dropping the names of the Commission’s officers for illicit material gains from unsuspecting members of the public. The three suspects are Samson Sani, Chinaza Ike and Kenneth Osita.
Prior to his arrest, Sani, 38, and a member of Charted Institute of Forensic and Professionals of Nigeria, CIFIPN, has been parading himself as a Course 8 staff of the EFCC and as well as the Head of Forensic Unit of the Commission. He used his false claims to approach members of the public who have issues in the Commission with promise of assisting them get out of trouble and obtain money from them in the process.
Luck ran out on Sani when sometime in 2019, he collected N5, 000, 000 (Five Million Naira) from one Henry Agbo with a promise to influence the outcome of a criminal matter that concerned him in the Commission and to secure the release of a suspect of interest to him in the custody of the Lagos Office of the EFCC.
