Parading the suspect in Katsina on Monday, the Police Commissioner, Alhaji Sabo Ringim  said the suspect was apprehended in Lagos following a tip-off.

He said the suspect, who established the company in Katsina in February, persuaded people  to invest in it to enable them to obtain 70 per cent interest on their investments.

“Consequently, people invested their money with the hope of realising the interest, but  the management of the company suddenly disappeared into thin air.
