The suspect also collected his MP3 mini speaker valued at N68,000 but no dollar was given to him at the end.

Upon the report, the DPO,Sango Police Station, Godwin Idehai quickly led his men to their hideout where the two suspects were apprehended.

On interrogation, they confessed beIng fraudsters who have duped many unsuspecting people using the same method.

Recovered from them are unidentified liquid substance, several fake American dollars and assorted charms.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Ajogun has ordered a massive manhunt for other members of the syndicate who are on the run.
