The dismissed officer, Ilesami Abiodun Alexander, was apprehended at the Police College after he obtained N385,000 from one Samuel Borhie under the false pretence of training him to become a Spy Police officer.
However, he ran out of luck, was arrested and handed over to the Police at Ikeja Division for interrogation over his conduct.
During interrogation, the Police discovered that he was dismissed in 2010 but he promoted himself and was embarking on illegally recruitment of Spy Police officers before he was arrested.
Having been found culpable, he was subsequently charged before the Ogba Magistrates Court for obtaining under false pretence and impersonation.
He pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Mr. Clifford Ogu, told the Court to give a date for hearing since he pleaded not guilty to enable the Police to prove that he actually committed the alleged offence.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. S.K. Matepo, granted him bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in the like sum.
However, he was remanded in Correctional Centre at Kirikiri town, Lagos, pending when he will perfect his bail conditions.
The matter was adjourned till 10th December, 2021, for mention.
