Due to the numerous allegations on the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), on extortion and illegal arrest, a 19-year-old tiler identified as Daniel Daisi has confessed to using this means to deceive and defraud his victims in Lagos.
The team commander of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), Salmon A. Opukeme said Daisi specialised in collecting huge sums of money from would be customers for tiling jobs only to lie to them that he was being detained by the police.
He usually told would be unsuspecting customers that the police had collected the money meant to buy tiles and warned that he must not be sighted in the area where he was supposed to do the job or he would be rearrested and charged to court.
Luck however, ran out on him after playing the trick on a customer identified as Waliu Ogundele. Waliu who later went with him to the FSARS station at Onilekere demand why he was arrested by the operatives.
In his confessions, he said: “I am sorry I lied. I wanted to use the N5,600 he (Ogundele) gave me to solve personal problems.
