Fake police commissioner, Lawyer, apprehended in Lagos

An individual who has been posing as a police commissioner in Lagos State has been apprehended by the Police Command.

The arrest was confirmed by the command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, during a press briefing on Monday.

Hundeyin also highlighted the recent achievements of the command, which included the arrest of 12 other individuals for various offenses over the past two weeks.

During this period, the command recovered four firearms, two live cartridges, one expended cartridge, 11 live ammunition, and one vehicle from the culprits.

The impersonator, identified as Emmanuel, was arrested on September 2 when he visited a police formation in Ikorodu and introduced himself as a Commissioner of Police.

However, upon questioning, it was discovered that he was an impersonator.

A search of his residence led to the recovery of a Deputy Commissioner of Police warrant card, an Assistant Commissioner of Police warrant card, a Kenwood walkie-talkie, a police camouflage singlet, and a face cap.

In a separate incident, another impersonator, Ibrahim Bello, was arrested on September 4 following a complaint from the Nigeria Bar Association, Epe Area. Bello had allegedly been presenting himself as a lawyer at the Epe Magistrate Courts for several years.

He was apprehended while dressed in a lawyer’s regalia in court. After questioning, it was determined that he was an impersonator as well.
