Man arrested for posing as a police detective to rob

A gang leader who specialised on posing as operative of the Inspector-General of Police (IG) Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT) to snatch cars, have been arrested.

Bashir Dahiru, who was caught attempting to steal a Toyota RAV-4, used to operate within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja and other neighbouring states.

Recovered from him, are two fabricated master keys, fake Inspector-General- of Police (IGP) Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT) identity card bearing his name and a Peugeot car.

In an interview with newsmen, Dahiru said: “I rely on informants and gang members for information on cars target and where they are parked. I operate on Suleja Road and beyond, depending on the location of the vehicle.

My modus operandi is to unlock parked cars with master key before stealing them. Allah knows that I have tried to stop the act, but I couldn’t. The worst is that I can’t even state what I do with the proceeds from the crime.” 📷: Newtelegraph
