The Inspector-General of Police Monitoring Unit in Lagos State arrested a 38-year-old dismissed Sergeant, Gbenga Ogundele, at Agboju Bus Stop, along Badagry Expressway, for allegedly impersonating the Force.
Confirming the arrest in Lagos on Friday, Johnson Ademola, the Head of the Unit, Assistant Commissioner of Police, said the suspect was dismissed twice in the force for illegal duty.
“He was arrested on Jan. 16, 2017, at Agboju area of Lagos while impersonating the Force by unlawfully wearing the police uniform and in possession of police accouterments,” Ademola added.
“The suspect was first dismissed while in PMF 11, Calabar in 2011 for illegal duty. He worked his way to Lagos command.
“He was later exposed when he could not fill his annual emolument form mandatory for all personnel. He ran away when the Admin Officer of the station demanded for him to present such.
“He was in the force for about three years without salary, as he never presented his emolument form, but always using the uniform for illegal duty,” he said.
