The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested a suspect for attempting to defraud his victim of $50,000 to secure a presidential appointment.
DSS Public Relations Officer, Dr Peter Afunaya, paraded the suspect on Tuesday at a press briefing in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
He identified the suspect as Mohammed Momoh, a 42-year-old indigene of Kogi State in Nigeria’s north-central region.
Afunaya explained that Mohammed was caught while trying to obtain the sum from his victim whom he promised to assist in securing an appointment as a Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari.
He warned Nigerians desirous of political appointments to beware of fraudsters who harvest information with the sole aim of defrauding unsuspecting victims.
