The Commander of the RRS, Mr. Tunji Disu, who confirmed the duo’s arrest on the squad’s twitter handle, said that decoy operatives were sent on the trail of the suspects after receiving complaints from some phone dealers in Lagos.

He said: “Decoy operatives of the RRS had arrested two men who specialise in ordering mobile phones online and making fake payment transfers to the sellers.
