Police arraign three ‘fake’ soldiers


The Police on Tuesday arraigned three civilians before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court for allegedly parading themselves as military men.

The defendants, Emmanuel Ifeanyichukwu, 34, Emmanuel Ogar, 31 and Basiru Saleh, 33, are facing a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy and impersonation.

They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Police prosecutor, Insp Wasiu Dada, said the defendants wore the Nigeria Army camouflage uniform and portrayed themselves as military personnel.

Dada told the court that the defendants committed the offences with others still at large on Oct. 22 at about 2.00 p.m. at Ajah in Lagos.
