Ishoke told the police that he was accosted by the suspects who lured him to their hideout at Koleosho street Anisere Sango Ota where they collected the sum of N148,000 from him under the pretence that they will change the money to dollar for him and he will make a huge profit.

He stated further that the suspects also collected his MP3 mini speaker valued at N68,000 but no dollar was given to him at the end.

Upon the report, the DPO Sango division, Csp Godwin Idehai quickly led his men to their hideout where the two suspects were apprehended.

The Police Public Relations Officer for the Command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi told The Nigerian Voice that the suspects confessed that they committed the crime.

Items recovered from them include unidentified liquid substance, several fake American dollars and assorted charms.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Edward Ajogun has ordered a massive manhunt for other members of the syndicate who are on the run.

The CP also directed that the past activities of the suspects should be properly investigated with the view to bring their nefarious activities to an end.

The CP therefore warned members of the public to beware of those who are out to swindle them.
