The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a 48-year-old man, Charles Chukwudi, for alleged forgery and impersonation.

Chukwudi was apprehended on Wednesday in Lagos Island by operatives of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).

His arrest followed discreet investigations into his issuance of fake court documents to unsuspecting members of the public.

During the arrest, the police found several forged official stamps in Chukwudi’s possession, including those of Chief Magistrate Admin, C/M Adeola Olatunbosun of Chief Magistrate Court I Yaba, and Magistrate A.B Ajiferuke of Magistrate Court Epe.
