Photos: Fake Army General who lied about Buhari making him the next COAS arrested

A fake army general Bolarinwa Oluwasegun, has been busted in the Lagos suburb of Alagbado, by operatives of the EFCC.

Nemesis caught up with the military impostor, when he made a false representation about his military status to secure a loan of N270m from Kodef Clearing Resources.

He told Kodef that President Muhammadu Buhari, had shortlisted him and one other to be appointed as the Chief of Army Staff, COAS, and that he needed a short grant “to press and process the appointment.”

He also allegedly forged a letter of appointment as COAS purportedly signed by the President and showed the same to the victim to further prove his claim.

In the said letter, he claimed that he needed to pay a certain amount of money into the coffers of the Federal Government of Nigeria, as part of the requirements for the appointment as COAS.

Oluwasegun, in his bid to defraud the victim, also allegedly forged several documents and the signature of the President.

He was arrested at his house in the Alagbado area of Lagos State on Wednesday, January 12, 2022.

Upon his arrest, six pump action guns, three cartridge bullets, a swagger stick and several forged documents were recovered from him.
