The FCT Police Command on Wednesday paraded one Tijani Omeka for allegedly impersonating SARS personnel.

The Police said the suspect who is a taxi driver operate within Mararaba , Area 1 axis of Abuja and extorts money from his victims.

On how he was caught, the Deputy Commissioner in charge of Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department, DCP Salisu Gyadi-Gyadi said he was arrested after the police got a tip off from some of those he had defrauded.

He said: “The Anti-One Chance Squad on the 11th September 2018 at about 1500hrs acting on a tip off arrested one Tijani Omeka a taxi driver who parades himself as an operative of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

“The suspect who often poses as Corporal Tijani to defraud unsuspecting members of the public was arrested at Nyanya, Gwagwalape Phase 1 after a sting operation.

“We recovered from him one black faz cap with the inscription SARS and a walkie-talkie.”
On his part, Omeka said: “I found the walkie-talkie from SARS premises on the floor and the cap belongs to one of the Operatives.

“The policemen are my friends and they usually use my service whenever they go on operation because I’m a taxi driver.

“I travelled and the cap was with me for about three months because I was out of Abuja. I took my car for repairs with the intention of going to drop the cap and walkie-talkie after they fix my car but I was still at the mechanic when they arrested me.”
