The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has arrested three persons suspected to be involved in a N20million scam.

A statement signed by the commission’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren named the suspects as Yakubu Dankaba (aka Yakubu Hamisu), Yahaya Baba and Usman Abdulhakeem (aka Chairman).

The statement, issued to newsmen on Thursday in Abuja, said the suspects posed as operatives of the commission with the aim of extorting N20 million from the Director, FCT Water Board.

It said the suspects wrote a letter to the director purported to be from the EFCC, notifying him of being under investigation.

They offered to help him quash the investigation if he could part with N20 million.

“Suspecting that he was about to be swindled, the director alerted the EFCC which swung into action and caught the three suspects in their own web of tricks.”

The statement said the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations were completed. (NAN)
