In conclusion, the EFCC’s relentless efforts to combat fraud and impersonation have led to the arrest of Mohammed Sani Mohammed, a notorious impersonator. Through his fraudulent activities, he exploited innocent victims who sought help with their cases. The EFCC’s swift action and collaboration between different commands played a pivotal role in capturing the imposter. This arrest highlights the EFCC’s commitment to ensuring the security and trust of the public while sending a strong message to those engaging in fraudulent practices.
