Police Capture ‘Fake EFCC Operatives’ Behind Nasarawa Poly Student Robbery

Three suspected members of a criminal gang who “posed as EFCC operatives” and reportedly robbed Federal Polytechnic, Nasarawa students as well as kidnapped one ND II student, Adudu Kingsley, have been detained by the Nasarawa State Police Command.

In a statement released on Wednesday, May 1, 2024, the command’s spokeswoman, DSP Ramhan Nansel, claimed that a member of the accused 4-man abduction and robbery ring who was on the run was apprehended and severely assaulted by a vengeful mob prior to the arrival of law enforcement.

The PPRO claims that once the police pulled the suspect from the crowd, they hurried him to Primary Health Care in Laminga, where he passed away while getting care.

Three more suspects, Shuaibu Abubakar, Henry Patrick Okwu, and Hyelda Aliyu Ibrahim who had left the scene were apprehended were all residents of Up Market area and Customs Quarters in the Karu LGA of Nasarawa State.
