However, both Iburu and Obuagbaka declined to talk to the press at they referred newsmen to the state Police public RelationsOfficer for confirmation, but investigations revealed that the suspects  had posed themselves as government task force assigned to distribute the products on behalf of the state government, hence they were forcing people to but the fake products from them before they were arrested by a team of police patrol team.

As at the time of filing this report, the suspects were still in detention at the CPS, while the fake products tied in two bid polythene bags are still in the custody of the police.

Efforts to get in touch with the State Police public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mohammed could not be reached as his phone line could not be connected.
