By Frank Oshanugor

Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) have bursted a fake Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) on Jobi Fele Way, Alausa Business District, Ikeja.

AtlanticNewsonline gathered that the clamp down followed a tip-off and painstaking background check and verification by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad.

Lagos Police spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, a Superintendent of Police said five suspects manning the center were equally arrested for forgery and impersonating CAC officials.

Those arrested include Gloria Ukaegbu aged 28, Omolere Kayode aged 30, Taiwo Ajayii aged 34, Nwachukwu Brenda aged 27 and Oluwatomisin Adebisi aged 25.

Led by the Commander RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, the operatives recovered several forged CAC documents, a Toyota Sienna and a Toyota Matrix used as makeshift offices for their nefarious transactions.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the syndicate has swindled over hundreds of people through fake CAC registrations.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, (CP) Abiodun Alabi, has directed that the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigations Department, Panti for further investigations and eventual prosecution.
