The action followed a complaint from a victim whom Umar allegedly defrauded through a fake employment offer with the Nigeria Customs Service, NCS.

Umar allegedly requested for the sum of N750,000 from the victim.

The job seeker gave him a deposit of N200, 000 and promised to pay the balance when he gets an appointment letter.

The victim was issued one which turned out to be fake. He petitioned the EFCC.

The suspect’s accomplice, Alhaji Isa Musa is still at large. Umar will be charged to court when investigation is concluded.
