Operatives of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) ,Kano State Office,has arrested one Mohammed Rabiu Isa, 48.
This followed the arrest of alleged kingpin of a job racketeering gang that was smashed by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) officers and the members handed over to the ICPC for investigation.
ICPC spokesperson,Rasheedat Okoduwa, said four suspected members of the criminal syndicate that specialised in duping unsuspecting job-seekers with fake employment letters, while in custody of ICPC had claimed during preliminary investigations that they were working for Mohammed as he was the one who issued them with the letters used for defrauding their victims which led to his arrest.
Preliminary investigations had also revealed that the suspects defrauded six persons to the tune of N900, 000 by assuring them of employment with the NIS at the cost of N150,000 each.
Mohammed has been granted administrative bail by the commission and will be released as soon as he fulfills the bail conditions.
Okoduwa further noted that all the suspects would be charged to court at the conclusion of investigation.
