Police Nab Three For Trading Fake Appointment Letter At N400,000

Nguroje said the suspects were arrested on June 29, after the command received a complaint from Dr Suleiman Saidu Bashir, the ADSPHCA executive chairman that certain individuals were impersonating the agency who said fraudsters were extorting money from unsuspecting citizens by issuing them fake letters of employment.

“After receiving the complaint, the Commissioner of Police, Dankombo Morris, directed the Assistant Commissioner of Police Intelligence to investigate, which led to the arrest of the suspects.

“Investigation further led to the arrest of Bello A Suleiman, 59, a Staff Officer at the Fiscal Responsibility Commission, Yola for aiding the Crime.

“So far, the culprits and their collaborators had issued fake letters of appointment to over 10 victims, collecting N400,000 from each, and were directed to a certain office at the Fiscal Responsibility Commission for data capture,” Nguroje explained.

Three individuals in Adamawa State were apprehended by the police for allegedly selling counterfeit appointment letters to job seekers at a price of N400,000 each.

According to a statement from the Adamawa State Police Command, obtained on Tuesday, July 2, two suspects were arrested for producing these fraudulent letters, while a civil servant was also apprehended for providing them with office space to conduct their illegal activities.

The police spokesperson, Suleiman Nguroje, indicated that the suspects were issuing fake appointment letters under the guise of being from the Adamawa State Primary Health Care Development Agency (ADSPHCDA).

The suspects are Muhammed Ahmed Attahir, 31, and Abdulrahman Bashir Ahmad, 23, both residents of Rabe Street, Bako Ward, Yola South LGA.

According to the command, 1 HP laptop, a thumbprint machine, and four fake appointment letters were recovered from the suspects and are now treated as exhibits.
