Police Arrest Fake Soldier While Soliciting For A Suspect


Nemesis caught up with an ex convict, Segun Ogundeji who posed as a soldier, but was arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command for impersonation.

A press statement from DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, Command PPRO, made available to Newsnigeriaonline.com.ng confirmed his arrest when he came to Sango Ota Divisional Headquarters fully dressed in army camouflage uniform to solicit for the release of a suspect.

Oyeyemi noted that the suspect on getting to the station, met another Air Force man, Cpl John Temitope who accused him of failure to give him official compliment, as a result of which quarrel ensued between them.

“It was the quarrel that led the DPO Sango CSP Godwin Idehai, to interrogate them. It was during the interrogation that the police discovered that Ogundeji was not a military man.

“It was also discovered that he has once been convicted by a court of competent jurisdiction for impersonation.

“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun has ordered a full investigation into the past activities of the suspect, with the view to charge him to court as soon as investigation is concluded.”
