Operatives of the Adamawa State Police Command have apprehended a 45-year-old man, identified only as Garba, over alleged N2.5 million money-printing fraud.
According to reports gathered by NIGERIACRIME, the suspect collected the sum of N2.5 million in instalments from his victim with the pledge of printing at least N30 million for the 29-year-old victim, but he was said to have failed to deliver on his promise.
The suspect is from Ruwan Bobo Mushiyar Mai Kaho, in Rogo Local Government Area of Kano State, while the complainant is from Boka ward in Michika LGA of Adamawa State.
It was learnt that Garba constantly requested different amounts of money from Ishaku to purchase certain requirements, which amounted to the total N2.5 million over a period, for the promised N30 million.

It was gathered that the two men were brought together by one herbalist named Ibrahim.
The suspect was said to have told his victim that demons had agreed to print N30 million for him if he was able to provide the needed fee to buy certain requirements.
Garba told Ishaku that the needed items the demons required include: monkeys, foxes, goats, dogs and cattle, among other animals, to arrange the printing.
It has been established that as Ishaku kept sending money to Garba in instalments, he was using it to feed his two wives and eight children.
Ishaku reported the matter to the police in Michika on April 15, 2022, leading to the arrest of Garba in his home town in Kano, after suspecting foul play.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Adamawa State, SP Suleiman Nguroje, who confirmed the matter on Thursday, said Ishaku had alleged that Garba started threatening him when he (Ishaku) stopped sending money to him.
On his part, Garba admitted duping Ishaku but said that the money Ishaku sent to him was N700,000 and not N2.5 million, and that he did not threaten Ishaku.
