The Police Command in the FCT has arrested Abubakar Abdullahi, 42, for allegedly impersonating as a staff of the State House under the office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

Anjuguri Manzah, spokesman of the command, made the disclosure in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

He said the suspect was arrested on October 4 following a compliant by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR).

Mr Manzah said that his accomplice, Salishu Abdulrasheed, 24, who assisted him to produce the forged document was also arrested in Kaduna State.

He said that items recovered from the suspects include seven forged State House documents written to some government agencies and departments and a fake ONSA which contains the suspect’s photograph.

He said that following the arrest, the Commissioner of Police Monitoring and Mentoring Unit, carried out a discreet investigation that led to the recovery of some forged letters.

Mr Manzah said that the suspects would soon be charged to court.

He advised government and private agencies to always do a thorough background check on documents, especially on those soliciting for any kind of favour.
