EFCC nabs Kwara Councillor for fraud

by Credible News
Former councilor in Ekiti Local Government Area of Kwara State, Samuel Adeojo, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over alleged car theft.
Adeojo was identified as the leader of a car theft syndicate notorious for stealing vehicles from car dealers while pretending as genuine buyers.
A statement signed by the EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, on Tuesday said until his arrest recently, the EFCC had been on his trail after a series of petitions against his gang’s criminal activities were considered by the commission’s Ibadan zonal office.
According to him, no fewer than three cases of car theft have been established against the syndicate, with all the vehicles involved recovered and kept in the commission’s custody in Ibadan.
Investigations revealed that the gang deployed a similar pattern to steal vehicles from their victims.
According to EFCC’s findings, Adeojo often pretends to be a medical doctor, adopting different names and different institutions as his place of work to appear responsible and create a false sense of confidence to penetrate the victims.
One of the many cases reported involved a Toyota Avensis wagon car in which he claimed to be one Gboyega Omojola of the University College Hospital, Ibadan.
The case was reported to the EFCC, Ibadan office on March 23 by Tunde Adejuwon, an Ibadan-based car dealer.
