Dismissed Naval officer nabbed in Lagos for impersonation


The police in Lagos State have arrested a dismissed Nigerian Naval officer for allegedly impersonating a serving military officer and assaulting residents.

The unnamed suspect was said to have been apprehended while he and his boys were beating a hotel worker.

“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.

“He charges N20,000 to bring his boys to beat up anybody for his clients,” the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, was quoted by the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Lagos.

He said the suspect was dismissed 24 years ago from the Nigeria Navy but continued to parade himself as a serving officer.

“The suspect has been dismissed since 2000, but still parades himself as a naval officer,’’ Hundeyin said.

He noted that the suspect would soon be arraigned.
