The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Wednesday, 26 June arrested Dennis Baba Wdony, Wycliffe Midala and Samuel Kayode Melaye, for allegedly parading themselves as military officers and using the office of the Chief of Defence Staff to defraud unsuspecting members of the public, through fake contract awards.

Investigations showed that the suspects operate a three-man syndicate that advertises fake bids for contracts in the office of the Chief of Defence Staff.

Their arrest followed multiple petitions received by the Commission in respect of their fraudulent activities. In one of the petitions, a victim claimed a loss of N21 million to their antics.
