Police Arrest NIN Racketeers in Rivers

Operatives of the Rivers State Police Command have arrested three persons suspected to be engaged in National Identity Number racketeering in Port Harcourt.

According to reports, the suspects were arrested on Wednesday, following complaints about the activities of the suspects who posed as agents of the federal agency to swindle unsuspecting members of the public visiting the National Identity Management Commission along Aba Road Port Harcourt. 

Some of the roadside acclaimed agents who were seen at the entrance of the commission on Thursday claim that they sell NIN registration forms due to lack of employment.

It was gathered that those arrested were pleading with the police to allow them to operate.

Meanwhile, a source at the Port Harcourt NIMC office who spoke on condition of anonymity said the men usually come there on a daily basis posing as agents, saying sometimes they swindle unsuspecting members of the public visiting the facility.
