The Lagos Police Command Headquarters Ikeja has detained a 27-year old man identified as Ben Okon for allegedly claiming to be attached to Mopol 20.

The suspect reportedly took to his heels upon sighting a police patrol team, chewed and swallowed a police identity card in his possession.

Okon, who was dressed in police uniform claimed to be a police corporal attached to Mopol 20, Lagos.

He confessed during interrogation to have found the police insignia and the corporal rank at a drinking joint in Agege area of the state and decided to attach it to his Man ‘O’ War uniform.

“I had never robbed with it. I only used it when I enter any commercial bus to avoid paying transport fee,” he said.

The suspect further confessed that the police rank and other items found on him fell out of the pockets of a policeman who came to drink in a bar.

“All the content that fell from the policeman’s pocket was contained in a small polythene bag. At first I thought it contained money, but when I opened it after its owner had left, I discovered that it contained police properties,” he said.

The Lagos Deputy Police Public Relations Officer (DPPRO), Assistant Superintendent of Police Damasus Ozoani, while parading the suspect before newsmen, said he provided conflicting statements regarding his identity.

However, he said that the suspect would soon be charged to court.
