The woman, aged 42, was also accused of forging the Ogun State Internal Revenue and Chief Magistrate’s stamps. She was arrested alongside her accomplice, identified as Isiaka Adebeshin.

Ogunleye and her accomplice, Adebeshin, according to the police, used to work together as a syndicate.

She confessed to have raked in over N5 million from the illicit business.

Her accomplice, Adebeshin was accused of forging driving licences, number plates and several other documents.

The syndicate allegedly used the seals of authority to convince and dupe unsuspecting members of the public.

Ogunleye , while confessing said: “Some of the stamps were not mine. They were kept in my shop by my business partner, who is still at large. It was my business partner, Shakiru Gbolahan, who brought the stamps to my shop.

“He used the stamps for his customers. I was later taught how to use it.

“I have not made much money from the business. If we want to renew driving licence, we charge N10,000, but if we want to do a new one, we charge N15,000. Since I started this business, I have made about N5 million. I regret my action. It never occurred to me that I would be arrested.”

The ZIS Commander, Mr. Gbenga Megboope, said the suspects were arrested after the police received a series of complaints from affected victims from the public.

According to him: “The suspects have deceived many residents of the state with the stamp of the state commissioner of police, Ogun State Internal Revenue and Chief Magistrate’s stamps.

People, who saw the stamp marks on official documents, believe such documents were genuine.”

Her accomplice, Adebeshin, while confessing said they were arrested at Oke-Mosan in their shop. He, however, denied allegation of forgery.

“I don’t deal in stamps. Whenever a document that requires stamp is brought to my shop, I would refer them to my colleague’s office. My colleague has different stamps.

“Since I started the job three years ago, I have only made about N2 million. Most of the profits come from the issuance of number plates. I was about to quit the business when I was arrested,” he said.
