The police arrested one Emeka Emmanuel with a fake identity card of the Economic and Financial Crimes (EFCC) at the Iyana Iba area of Lagos state.
A statement from the State Police Command on Sunday said operatives also arrested suspect cultist, Emmanuel Olatunde, also known as pastor in the Bariga area of the state.
Mr Bala Elkana, the command’s spokesman, explained that 29-year-old Emeka was apprehended on Saturday night by operatives of the Ojo Police Station while acting on credible intelligence.
According to him, the suspect who was also found to be operating an illegal medical facility in his residence confessed to committing the crime.
While the police recovered medical equipment and fake certificates from him, Elkana said the suspect would be charged to court as soon as they conclude investigation.
He also advised members of the public, especially job seekers to be mindful of the activities of such people in order not to fall prey of their antics.
On the other hand, 31-year-old Olatunde was arrested following sustained monitoring at Oremenunu Ibafo Street in Bariga.
The suspect, according to Elkana, is an ex-convict and is a high ranking member of Eiye Confraternity, terrorising people in Bariga.
Elkana said the suspect would also be charged to court as soon as they conclude investigation.
