A fake Customs officer, identified as Ramoni Raji, has been arrested by Lagos State Police Command after he swindled an assistant director of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and many other Nigerians of millions of naira in bogus customs auction sales.
Raji, 63, was arrested after one Mrs Uche sent a petition to the Lagos State Commissioner for Police, Mr Cornelius Aderanti, with an allegation that the suspect, Raji swindled her of N800, 000 after parading himself as a customs officer.
Uche alleged that Raji, a husband of three wives and father of nine children, assured her that he would procure her customs auction vehicles.
According to Leadership, Raji, was arrested for the similar offence in 2013.
In his confessional statement, Raji told police that: “I have been duping people. I’ve duped many people. In Ilorin, I promised to give about 600 bags of rice for N3.5 million to a victim, but I didn’t. In Abuja, I did a scam of N4.2million. I duped an assistant director, operations, NAFDAC, by promising a car I didn’t supply.”
