A suspect posing as a PHCN official to gain access to a private residence has been arrested.
A Nigerian lady who shared the story online said the man dressed in the full regalia of a PHCN official and asked that he be allowed into the premises to do check their meter. When asked about his other colleagues, he said they were on their way.
The owner of the house and her husband raised an alarm when they saw he couldn't do the job of a PHCN official and didn't come with a ladder. When he was searched, a matchete and three hammers were found on him.
''Good afternoon everyone,and my fellow dear Nigerians,this is to bring to your notice that something horrific almost happened today in my estate but we thank God they didn’t succeed. This person in the picture/video who claims to be a nepa official dressed in nepa regalia and all claiming to be one of them,that his colleagues were somewhere working that they are coming to join him.
