How Police Arrested Fake Soldiers in Imo State

No fewer than three suspects have being arrested by the Imo State Police Command for allegedly forming as Soldiers and defrauding people on the pretence of making them join the Nigerian Army.

The suspects identified as Kingsley Inyang, Edet Okon and Victor Akpan were arrested on April 4, 2017.
One of the suspects, Inyang, dressed in army uniform confessed that they have defrauded 22 people and the uniform he wore belonged to his father who was a retired soldier.
The state Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezeike, while parading the suspects said they were arrested on April 4, 2017, at Amakohia Ubi, Owerri West Local Government Area of the state.
Ezeike said they allegedly defrauded people on the pretext of enlisting them into the Nigerian Army.
He said the suspects who disguised as soldiers rented an office and mandated their victims to pay N8,000 and N70,000 for medical tests and recruitment exercises, respectively.
Two pairs of army uniforms, a pair of army boots, one camouflage cap, one laptop and other exhibits were recovered from them upon their arrest.

CP, Ezeike added that the suspects would be charged to court after the ongoing investigations.
