factory in Gombe metropolis   who  was  earlier deceived  by the suspect   that government had registered his  product  with NAFDAC to enable him  operate his  factory     without hindrance.

Speaking further, the police spokesman said after  collecting the money from the bakery for the first time, the suspect went for the econd time to demand more  before he  run out of luck when the bakery reported the matter to the police at the station  which led to his arrest.

The PPRO  warned residents to be security conscious and report any suspicious movement to the police and called on them to always identify people in their area  who claim to be  policemen in order to avoid fraudulent.
