EFCC Arrests Fake Army General Who Claimed Buhari Nominated Him As COAS

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Lagos Zonal Command, said it has arrested one Bolarinwa Oluwasegun, a fake Army General, for N270 million fraud.

The EFCC, in a statement on Thursday, said the suspect allegedly made false representations to the complainant, Kodef Clearing Resources, that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), had shortlisted him and one other to be appointed as the Chief of Army Staff, COAS, and that he needed a short grant “to press and process the appointment.”

“He also allegedly forged a letter of appointment as COAS purportedly signed by the President and showed the same to the victim to further prove his claim,” the anti-graft agency said.
