Ihesiaba Ifeanyi and three others suspects have been arrested for engaging in fake money distribution and were paraded on Tuesday, at the Ikeja police command headquarters.
Ihesiaba Ifeanyi explained that his elder brother, Hope gave him some of the money, and that he was arrested where he wanted to buy call credit to make some calls.
He further explained that it was when he got to the police station that he informed his elder brother who he was arrested.
Ihesiaba Hope older brother to Ifeanyi regretfully said, “This is the first time I will be doing it, I gave N8, 000 original notes to somebody in Aba market and I was given fake 18 pieces of N1, 000 notes in exchange. “If I had known, I won’t have done it. I am into laundry business where I stay in Lagos.”
One of the suspects, Chioma Udubi a 26- year-old lady from Abia State who was arrested alongside the suspects said that she did not know anything about the case. She stated that Ifeanyi is only her boyfriend and she went to his house to visit him that was how she was arrested.
Another suspect, Simeon Joseph, a 29-year-old man from Benue also explained that he didn’t know anything about the case, and that he only went to visit Hope, who happened to be his friend.
The police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmus explained that investigations are going on about the case and the truth of the matter will be unveiled.
