A young man, who specialized in dispossessing his victims of their bank Automated Teller Machine cards after obtaining their pin numbers has been arrested by the police in Enugu.
The suspect, Obinna Okafor, moves about with ‘fake’ ATM cards, which he usually switches with those of his victims, who he pretends to assist while they are making cash withdrawals at ATM points in various banks within Enugu metropolis.
It was gathered that, once Okafor observes that a customer was having difficulties with the ATM transaction, he would rush to the person’s assistance, and in the process, memorise the victim’s pin number, after which he will switch the ATM card with one of the fake cards he has in his possession.
The spokesman for the Enugu State Police Command, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the development, said Okafor was apprehended in the act on October 8, 2018, in the New Haven area of Enugu.
