Two suspects, Ugochukwu Obilo, 56, and Okwocha Donald, 50 have been arrested by the Men of the Benue State Community Volunteer Guards (BSCVG).

Parading the suspects at the BSCVG Headquarters Makurdi on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, Head of Patrol and Guard Mr Ime Nathan explained that the duo operate a notorious syndicate that specializes in swindling people using different tricks along Bank Road also known as New Otukpo Road, Makurdi.

Mr Ime said they attach nails on slippers and plant them under their victims cars, who immediately experience flat tyres once their cars start moving.

According to Ime, the suspects will then rush to their victims cars in the guise of offering help, before robbing them and making away with money and any available valuables they find in the car.

He said they also implore the “come and buy” trick popularly known as “Guy Man Business” where they parade products before their potential victims with convincing tactics which enables them to get much money from them.

Ime further stated that they were confronted with several reports of the activity of the 419 sindicate which prompted them to swing into action, leading to the arrest of the two, while others are at large.

He tasked citizens to be alert and report every suspected activity of men who indulge in all forms of criminality, stressing that they remain motivated to curbing criminality of sorts in Benue with the cooperation of the public.
