Fake CP, legal practitioner, others paraded in Lagos

A young man, Nwagu Emmanuel, who was paraded alongside twelve other suspects at the state police command Ikeja for impersonating a Commissioner of police has revealed that he was drunk when he committed the act.

Nwagu who spoke to journalists said: “I was arrested because I claimed to be Commissioner of Police. I have never served in any police formation. Honestly I was drunk on that day. I drove into the police station with my friend who lives nearby. He wanted me to introduce him to the area commander so I went there to introduce him to the commander. He wanted to familiarize with the area commander.”

The ID card was given to me by A.S.P ABBA, an officer of RRS men who I used to know. I have two identity cards, Assistant commissioner of police and that of Deputy Commissioner of Police. Both of them are of the same date. I was the only one issued with the ID card

He gave me the ID card, a police vest and a cap because they were guarding our Hotel. I paid two thousand naira for the two ID cards.The Walkie Talkie belongs to the church is not mine. I started using it last year when it was given to me.

“The only time I used the ID card was the day VIO stopped me. I told them that I’m a retired officer. They still took me to their office and then booked me. They said they don’t know if I’m an officer or not, because my license expired.”

Speaking on the development, the Spokesperson Benjamin Hundeyin who paraded the suspect said: “On September 2, 2023 at about 4:40 PM Nwagu Emmanuel visited a police premises and introduced himself as a Commissioner of Police. He was fully regarded as such but upon questioning he was discovered to be an impersonator. A search was conducted at his abode and a Deputy Commissioner of Police warrants card, an Assistant Commissioner of Police warrant card, Kenwood walkie-talkie, police camouflage singlet and face cap were recovered”.

A 62-year-old suspect, Ibrahim Bello who was also paraded for impersonation said: “I am an estate agent. Whenever I collect a kind of litigation in my office I give it to lawyers to take it up and appear in the court for them. But it was on the 4th when I went to the court to see if the lawyers I gave the job to were in Court that I was arrested. I was just sitting and a lawyer just came to me and said, I should stand up and say that I am not a lawyer.

I kept the legal attire in the office so that whenever a lawyer does not have a robe he can easily come in and take it to the court. On the day I was arrested, I was there to see if my lawyers are there because it’s not a new case and I want to know if they really come to appear in respect of the matter I gave to them.
