The police boss
in charge of Agbor Police Division, Superintendent Albert Dike Uchechi has
warned people using that and the names of other important personalities in Ika
South local government area to commit fraud to desist from their dubious act as
anyone caught will face the wrath of the law for criminal act and
SP Uchechi gave the warning in a
chat with Ika Weekly correspondent at his office in Agbor on Wednesday, 26th
According to him, “using my name
to commit fraud or any dubious act without my conscent is not only a criminal
act but also impersonating as well, offence which is liable for jail terms in
the court of law.” He disclosed that he was him surprised to receive reports
from people that one Mr. Chibuzor Duru, has been duping them, saying that he
(Agbor DPO) is his uncle and he has some jobs to sell.
The police boss stated clearly
that he has no relation or in-laws in Agbor and Delta State as whole and that
all those obtaining money from people under false pretence in his name are
never his relations. “I am not a job vendor but just a civil servant in the
police force so, anyone who fall victim is at his own risk as he or she never
came to me for clearance of such deal”.
SP Uchechi said that he only
came across the said fraudster once. According to him, “Duru has come to the
station and introduce himself as a barrister and that he has clients to bail.
Because I am friendly to lawyers and individuals who came to me for complains,
I asked Duru to apply for the said bail. In the cause of our discussions, Duru
said himself and his wife are from Igbo land.”
He explained that for the fact
that Duru and wife are from Igbo land do
not make them his relations. SP Uchechi asserted that he has investigated and I
find out that Duru is not a barrister which he is claiming to be.
The Agbor police boss concluded
by calling on members of the general public to call him on the GSM number
08066069335 if anyone come to them that he (DPO) has a deal to transact. He
disclosed that Duru used the following numbers when calling his victims:
07063275088, 070650862972, 080629554373 to pay in huge some of money into UBA
Bank having the account number 2063577660, account name: Mrs Chibuzor Stella
Obianuba. The general public should learn to report to the any case of fraud.
