The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has arrested three suspected impostors who were allegedly involved in a N20million scam.

This is contained in statement signed by the agency?s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, and issued to newsmen in Abuja, Thursday.

The statement revealed that the suspects, Yahaya Baba, Yakubu Dankaba (aka Yakubu Hamisu) and Usman Abdulhakeem, who is fondly called Chairman, had allegedly posed as operatives of the Commission with the aim of extorting N20 million from the Director, FCT Water Board and wrote a letter to the director purported to be from the EFCC, notifying him of being under investigation.


The trio, however, offered to help him quash the investigation if he could part with N20 million.

According to the statement, ?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 suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations were completed,? the statement said.
