A fake street beggar has been arrested by men of the Nigerian police at Aroma junction, Awka, Anambra State.
Apex News reports that the suspect one Sunday Justice from Ebony State is notorious for harassing pedestrians for money to help feed claiming to be deformed with bandaged left hand.
Unfortunately for Justice, men of the Nigeria Police stationed at Aroma junction accosted him after noticing his suspicious movements.
Upon investigation, the police men discovered that Justice had no injuries on his bandaged left arm, they also discovered cash of various denominations on him and a substance suspected to drug probably used to get him high.
The police men in their reaction appealed to residents to be careful when giving street beggars money as many of them are pretending to be ill in order to extort money for residents.
