Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Lagos Zonal Office, have arrested one Williams Ogwezi, also known as Dr Williams, for parading himself as an official of the commission to defraud his unsuspecting victims.
He was said to have also forged EFCC identity cards and those of other law enforcement agencies.
The Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed in a statement in Abuja, on Thursday, that Ogwezi was arrested in Lagos, following a report from the Nigeria Police Area Command, Ajah, Lagos.
