This is what he has to say about the incidents
F-SARS received a distress call that Obunwa and Abe, who claimed to be operatives of F-SARS, accosted Pastor Finan and his younger brother and subjected them to thorough search in their compound at Igwuruta, with undisclosed sum of money extorted from them.
The suspects impersonated as operatives of F-SARS and they have been doing it for a while. We quickly responded to the distress call, because the members of the public adequately utilized the distress lines that we gave.
We traced the impersonators and we arrested them. We have a lot of miscreants who are impersonating security agents, especially F-SARS, thereby harassing, intimidating and extorting money from innocent members of the public, who ought to be very vigilant.
Will you say that it is safe to say that the harassing of the youths in the country are done by FAKE operatives, or is it a misleading action from the agency.
