Police in Ogun State have arrested an ex-convict, Segun Ogundeji, who impersonated as a soldier at the Sango-Ota Police Divisional Headquarters.
The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi disclosed this in a statement, in Abeokuta, on Sunday.
Oyeyemi said that Ogundeji was apprehended when he went to Sango-Ota Divisional Headquarters, fully dressed in an Army camouflage to plead for the release of a suspect.
“On getting to the station, Ogundeji met an Air Force man, one Cpl. John Temitope, who accused him of failure to give him official compliment, as a result of which a quarrel ensued between them.
“It was the quarrel that led the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Sango-Ota, CSP Godwin Idehai, to interrogate them. It was during the interrogation that the police discovered that Ogundeji is not a military man.
“It was also discovered that a court once convicted Ogundeji for impersonation,’’ he stated.
However, the State Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Ajogun, has ordered a full investigation into the past activities of Ogundeji.
