He said, “The suspects, admitted to the crime, and stated that on that fateful day, the victim, who went to withdraw money at the ATM was finding it difficult to do so.
“He then asked them for assistance and in the process, they swapped his card with their own fake card. On how they got his PIN, they said the gang leader stood directly behind the victim and since the card was fake, he had to enter the pin several times.
“They then moved to the filling station on the Kubwa Expressway, where they have an accomplice by name Henry, who used POS to transfer the money into their account and remitted cash equivalent to the company.”
