In another development, A 40-year old man , Obanle Ishola was arrested by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps for operating a fake recruitment office in Ilaro, Yewa South Local Government Area of the state.

Punch report:

According to the NSCDC Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr. Olanrewaju Kareem, the suspect claims to be a clerical officer at Yewa South LGA.

He said Ishola operated an employment scam, in which he promised his victims of placement in the NSCDC.

He said, “The man was arrested by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps surveillance team after receiving information about his criminal activities. He has duped many people, including Ogunlana Babatunde and Jimoh Ilo.”

Kareem said Ishola duped each victim of N93,000, promising them non-existing jobs with the NSCDC.

He said after the victims had waited for months without getting any offer of employment, they went to the NSCDC’s office in Abeokuta.

Ishola had also reportedly issued some of them fake letters of appointment.

Kareem said, “The said appointment letters were later found to be fake, hence their protest to civil defence office.”

The suspect during interview, denied the allegations, saying the victims paid him for something else, and not for recruitment as alleged.

He, however, agreed that he was discussing issues relating to civil defence employment with the complainant.

Kareem said the suspect was arrested around the Bode-Olude area of Elega in Abeokuta North Local Government Area by combined efforts of residents and men of the corps.

He said the suspect was found in possession of some cables allegedly removed from one of the transformers that supplied electricuty to Federal Housing Estate, Abeokuta.

He said, “He took to his heels when he was challenged by the people. He was given a hot chase and was arrested and taken to the NSCDC office where formal complaint was made against him.”

Kareem said the suspect told his men that he was lured into the business by someone he had yet to mention, explaining that each of the cables could be sold for N6,000 and above.

He said the suspect would be charged to court after the preliminary investigation.
