The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested a suspected impersonator and fraudster, Abdulrauf Illyasu, for allegedly defrauding members of the public within the precincts of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Illyasu was said to have secured an office opposite the Presidential Banquet Hall, where he carried out his nefarious activities.

EFCC sources said that the suspect claimed to be a member of the Chattered Insurance Institute of Nigeria, and also a Deputy General Manager with the National Insurance Corporation of Nigeria.
EFCC investigation showed that he successfully swindled the Managing Director of Galaxy Investment, Babagana Dalor, of N500 million.

Dalor is also under EFCC investigations, for operating a Ponzi scheme running into billions of naira.
Illyasu was said to have defrauded Union and Allied Engineers Ltd of N70 million.
His other victims include Excel Technology Ltd., which lost N50 million to him; Arabo and Co. Ltd, N50 million; Crystal Gate Ltd., N25 million; Diamond Global Fencing, over N27 million; and many others.

A source stated: “The suspect collected the money with the promise of using his office to facilitate contracts and other favours for them (his victims), and he actually gave them contract letters signed by him.
“He allegedly admitted that he used about N1 billion from monies realised to take care of the disabled persons.”
