According to EFCC, Adamu was picked up by the Nigerian Army following series of complains against him from several of his victims whom he offered fake recruitment into the Nigerian Army.

After his arrest, the suspect named one Hashimu Mohammed as his accomplice, leading to his arrest in Kano.

Upon his arrest, Adamu was discovered to be carrying a Nigerian Army identity card bearing the name of one Idris Salisu who is also military personnel. However, the suspect was said to have removed the picture of the bearer and affixed his own passport photograph on the I.D card.

When the suspect was asked how he came in possession of the I.D card, he claimed he found it in a wallet he picked up in Lagos.
