However, he expressed his delight with the recent arrest of one Olubunmo Olalekan, who paraded himself as Principal Detective Superintendent of the organisation.
Uwujaren explained that the suspect has couriered over sixty letters to different top officials of ministries, department and agencies of government under the pretence that there was a petition against them, and that he could help them destroy the case if they cooperated.
At the time of arrest, the suspect was found with fake letter head papers, 30 GSM sim cards, assorted complimentary cards, a laptop computer and printer from where he churns out the fraudulent letters.
Uwujaren said the suspect will soon be arraigned in court.
