Police arrest man who robs ATM users in Anambra

The Anambra State Police Command has arrested a 30-year-old man, Obinna Okafor, who has been described as a specialist in robbing users of Automatic Teller Machines.

Briefing journalists on Thursday, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, said the suspect specialised in robbing bank customers making cash withdrawals at ATM points.

Mohammed said Okafor was arrested at the Nnewi branch of Access Bank by policemen on patrol.

He stated, “The suspect specialises in duping unsuspecting victims around Automated Teller Machine centres by swapping their ATM cards with other stolen cards in his possession.

“Operatives attached to the Nnewi Area Command, while on surveillance patrol around Access Bank, Nnewi, arrested one Obinna Okafor, 30 years, of Enugu-Ezike in Enugu State.
“He was arrested while withdrawing money using an ATM card stolen from a medical student in Nnewi.”

Mohammed added that exhibits found on the suspect included eight different ATM cards reasonably suspected to have been stolen from his victims and the sum of N120,000 withdrawn from his last victim’s account at the point of his arrest.

He stated that the case was under investigation after which the suspect would be charged to court for prosecution.
