The Rapid Response Squad (RRS) busted a fake Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) centre in Jobi Fele Way, Alausa Business District, Alausa, Ikeja, following a tip-off, painstaking background check, and verification.
Five people working at the center were arrested for forgery and impersonating CAC officials. Gloria Ukaegbu, 28, Omolere Kayode, 30, Taiwo Ajayii, 34, Nwachukwu Brenda, 27, and Oluwatomisin Adebisi, 25, are among those arrested.
Led by the Commander RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, the operatives recovered several forged CAC documents, a Toyota Sienna and a Toyota Matrix used as makeshift offices for their nefarious transactions.
Preliminary investigation reveals that the syndicate has swindled hundreds of people through fake CAC registrations.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi has directed that the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigations Department, Panti for further investigations and eventual prosecution.
