Police arrests two Fake SARS Operatives in Rivers

Rivers state police command has arrested two persons parading themselves as officers of Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS), at Igwuruta. Fake Commander, Kenneth Obunwa, who hails from Rivers State and fake officer, Oluwagbenga Abe, who hails from Ijero-Ekiti in Ekiti State will soon appear in court.

The state Commander of SARS, Akin Fakorode, while parading suspects, said they were arrested after the command received a distress call around 7 a.m. on Tuesday.

“F-SARS received a distress call that Obunwa and Abe, who claimed to be operatives of F-SARS, accosted Pastor Finan and his younger brother and subjected them to thorough search in their compound at Igwuruta, with undisclosed sum of money extorted from them.

The suspects impersonated as operatives of F-SARS and they have been doing it for a while. We quickly responded to the distress call, because the members of the public adequately utilized the distress lines that we gave.

We traced the impersonators and we arrested them. We have a lot of miscreants who are impersonating security agents, especially F-SARS, thereby harassing, intimidating and extorting money from innocent members of the public, who ought to be very vigilant.”
