Operatives of the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad of the Police Command in Imo says it has arrested a member of the U.S. Army, Mr. Garrick Michael, over alleged advance fee fraud.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Dasuki Galadanchi, disclosed this on Wednesday in Owerri while presenting to journalists the suspect, Michael, and other suspects involved in different crimes ranging from armed robbery, to kidnapping and child trafficking.
Galadanchi said Michael was an American citizen who specialised in defrauding women of huge amount of money under the pretext of securing American visa for them.
He named victims of the suspect as Sylva Chineyenwa, Wuchi Peace and Duny Glory.
Michael told the News Agency of Nigeria that he returned to Nigeria to visit his wife who resided in the country before he met his three alleged victims.
He said his business deal with the women was still valid before his arrest.
The commissioner also said that a kidnapper who had been on the police blacklist, one Reginald Durunzenwata, was arrested on August 4 and would soon be charged to court.
He said the suspect was allegedly involved in the kidnap and murder of a businessman, Chidi Eburuaji, in Imo. Eburuaji was kidnapped and murdered in July.
Galadanchi said apart from kidnapping, the suspect also specialised in diverting petrol tankers.

''I will be very honest with you. I think Leo is an amazing guy. He is actually a very great guy. You know we didn't get to know ourselves in the house but right now what we are doing is that we are getting to know ourselves.
"He is a true friend I have decided to be there for regardless of the situation. You know me, I am a very loyal person. If I say it is you, then it is you. For me outside the house, Leo is the closest. I like him and I want to be there for him''. she said

Barcelona have signed Senegalese international footballer, Moussa Wague to join its ranks as a staggering release clause is inserted in his contract.

Barcelona have captured the £4.5million signing of Senegal international Moussa Wague from Belgian side KAS Eupen, Daily Mail UK reports.
And the Catalan giants have looked to fend off interest in Wague in the future by inserting a sensational £90m release clause in his contract.
The 19-year-old right back has signed a five-year contract at the Nou Camp and will join up with the Barcelona B side at the beginning of his spell in Spain.
Wague passed his relevant medical tests on Friday, August 3 and he met up with Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu for the first time. 
Wague impressed at the World Cup in Russia as Senegal agonisingly missed out on a place in the knockout rounds to Colombia and Japan in Group H. 
The teenager became the youngest African to score in World Cup history after netting a decent finish against Japan.
Wague, well known for his blistering pace, has experience playing in the Europa League and the Belgian top flight with Eupen.
In his two seasons in the first team at Eupen, Wague played 23 games in the top flight.
Before moving to Belgium, the defender learned his trade as a footballer at Aspire Academy in Qata

How Ex-DSS Boss, Lawal Daura Was Arrested

Lawal Daura has been relieved of his duties hours after orchestrating the siege on the National Assembly yesterday.

Lawal Daura
The plot was like that of a movie, leaving trained security and intelligence officials confused. At the end of it, Lawal Daura, then head of one of Nigeria’s foremost security agencies was whisked away while his well trained security aides waited for him.
Multiple sources at the Nigerian Presidency have told PREMIUM TIMES how Mr Daura, former Director-General of State Security Service, (SSS), was sacked and arrested on the orders of Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday.
Mr Daura was sacked after masked SSS operatives laid siege to the National Assembly complex preventing lawmakers and civil servants from gaining access into the building.
The siege was only lifted about an hour after Mr Daura’s sack.
Sources at the presidential villa said Mr Osinbajo, who has been in charge since President Muhammadu Buhari proceeded on a 10 day vacation to the UK, was outraged by the actions of the SSS.
“When the siege began, the acting president quickly went to action and was able to gather preliminary information of what was going on after which he invited some of the security chiefs concerned for a briefing,” one of the sources said.
He said those invited include the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the former DG, Mr Daura. This platform earlier reported Mr Osinbajo’s meeting with both officials.
The source also said the acting president was briefed earlier by National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno.
“When Lawal Daura came in, the acting president asked him who cleared him to order operatives to lay siege on the National Assembly; and his response was ‘shocking’.

“He simply said it’s within his powers and that he is only answerable to the President and Commander-in-Chief who appointed him,” the source said.
The source also said unknown to Mr Daura, the acting president had already spoken to Mr Buhari after initial reports indicated that Mr Daura “was in play with President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki.”
After his response, Mr Osinbajo told his media aide, Laolu Akande, to immediately issue a statement announcing the sack of Mr Daura.
“The acting president also asked the National Security Adviser to hand over the sacked DG to the police for further investigation,” he said.
Another source at the Villa , who witnessed the drama that followed the directive from Mr Osinbajo, said as soon as his arrest was ordered, the Aide De Camp (ADC) to Mr Osinbajo was seen rushing to the ceremonial gate, where the Mobile Police Force office is located.
“The ADC returned to the VP wing with some mobile police officers in a rush and asked that a vehicle should be brought immediately to the rear area for (Daura’s) evacuation.

“We thought the VP, who is the only one whose convoy uses that place, was about to go out and there was a need for additional vehicle. An SUV was ‘scrambled’ but the ADC said they should bring a tinted Hilux van,” he said.
Meanwhile, the source said Mr Daura ‘s convoy and personal security were waiting for him, like they normally do, at the administration gate (a separate one from the ceremonial gate) not knowing what was going on inside.
“All of them thought the DG was still meeting with the acting president until the convoy was asked to return to headquarters empty,” he said.
Another source, a former director in the SSS who worked with Mr Daura, said he (Daura) is currently being detained at the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), in Abuja.
“The fact that he was handed over to SARS and detained in a guest house (for high profile suspects) should give you an indication of how the government is handling this matter. He is now considered a suspected serious criminal,” he said.
He also said a combined team of both the police and SSS “would have begun interrogating Mr Daura by now.”
It was reported how Mr Daura’s security details returned to the SSS headquarters without their principal.
A senior official at the SSS said the security details, after waiting for Mr Daura to come out from the meeting with the vice president, simply received an order from a director at the agency that they return to the agency’s headquarters.
By then, an acting Director-General had been named for the SSS.
Matthew Seiyefa, was until his appointment the director in charge of the Institute of Security Studies (ISS), an institution established in 2005 as the cardinal training institution for the SSS.
Mr. Seiyefa was the most senior official at the SSS after Mr Daura. He briefly met with Mr Osinbajo on Tuesday. The acting DG, an indigene of Bayelsa State, was director of operations between 2007 and 2010 when Afakriya Gadzama ran the agency.
