The Ogun police command says an ex-convict, who allegedly disguised as a soldier, has been arrested at the Sango Ota divisional headquarters.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, Ogun police spokesperson, disclosed this in a statement issued on Sunday.
According to NAN, the suspect, identified as Segun Ogundeji, was described as an ex-convict who had been earlier prosecuted for impersonation.
The suspect was said to have been arrested when he went to the Sango-Ota divisional headquarters, fully dressed in army uniform, to solicit the release of a suspect.
“On getting to the station, Ogundeji met an air force man, one Cpl. John Temitope, who accused him of failure to give him official compliment, as a result of which a quarrel ensued between them,” the statement reads.
“It was the quarrel that led the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Sango-Ota, CSP Godwin Idehai, to interrogate them. It was during the interrogation that the police discovered that Ogundeji is not a military man.
“It was also discovered that a court once convicted Ogundeji for impersonation.”
The Ogun police spokesman added that Edward Ajogun, commissioner of police in the state, has directed that a full investigation be conducted into the past activities of the suspect.
