Police nab two suspected fraudsters in Lagos

Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested two suspected fraudsters; Seyi Demola and Wale Lawson, for allegedly defrauding members of the public.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the command’s Public Relations Officer, confirmed the arrest in a post he shared on his X handle on Saturday.

According to him, the suspects were arrested on Saturday by officers from Isokoko Division of the command.

“The suspected fraudsters were arrested by officers from Isokoko Division following a distress call.

“They were found with two female handbags, cash and an iPhone,” he said.

The PPRO, who said that preliminary investigation reveals that many people have fallen victim to their scheme, added that investigation into the case was ongoing.

In the video Hundeyin attached to his post, a woman narrated how she almost fell victim to the suspects’ tricks, stressing that one of the suspects, who claimed to be a prophet, approached her for prayers.

“He told me and his accomplice, who pretended to be seeking help from him, to buy sachet water and use it to pray for each other.

“He instructed the man to pray with the water for me and give me his bag to hold,” she said.

She further stated that the suspects told her not to look back or else she will become Lot’s wife in the Bible.

According to her, the suspects were about to mount a motorcycle to run away when people intercepted them and that was when she realized that the suspects knew each other.
