Dismissed Naval Officer Nabbed In Lagos For Impersonation

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a dismissed Nigerian Navy personnel for allegedly impersonating a serving military officer and lending himself out to assault people.

A statement by the Command’s spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said the suspect was apprehended while he and his boys were beating a hotel staff.

Hundeyin said the job was contracted to him by one of the hotel’s customers who had refused to stop smoking in a ‘no smoking’ area of the hotel.

According to the PPRO, the dismissed naval officer charged N20,000 to bring his boys to beat up anybody for his clients.

He stated that the suspect was dismissed 24 years ago from the Nigeria Navy, but continued to parade himself as a serving personnel.

“The suspect was dismissed since 2000, but still parades himself as a naval officer,’’ Hundeyin stressed.

He assured that the suspect would soon be arraigned.
