According to him, “the suspect,  whose  arrest  followed  a swift response to a distress call, would have been lynched  by an angry mob if not for the quick intervention of the Operatives.

He was “alleged to have fraudulently swapped a victim’s UBA ATM Card, after offering to assist a woman process her transaction on another bank’s ATM, with the intention of defrauding her.

 “He confessed to the crime as well as being a member of the syndicate that specialized in unsuspectingly swapping ATM Cards of their victims at Banks’ ATMs with non-functional Cards, which they use to fraudulently obtain funds from their accounts.

“Meanwhile, intense discreet investigation is ongoing to arrest and bring to book, other members of the criminal syndicate, including the suspect’s accomplices who escaped on the said date.
