Police arrest ex-convict for impersonating soldier at Ogun station
An ex-convict, Segun Ogundeji, was arrested and dressed as a military staff visiting a police station in Ogun State.
Ogundeji was arrested at Sango police station in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The incident was confirmed on Sunday by the commander’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi.
The ex-convict was in full military camouflage at the police station to seek the release of a suspect, according to Oyeyemi.
However, he met an Air Force staff who accused him, given his uniform status, of not paying him compliments.
“On getting to the station, Ogundeji met an Air Force man, one Cpl. John Temitope, who accused him of failure to give him an official compliment, as a result of which a quarrel ensued between them,” Oyeyemi stated.
The brawl had attracted the attention of the Sango-Ota DPO, CSP Godwin Idehai, who interrogated the two of them.
Oyeyemi explained that “it was during the interrogation that the police discovered that Ogundeji is not a military man.”
He added that the police also got to discover that “a court once convicted Ogundeji for impersonation.”
Meanwhile, a full investigation has been ordered into the past activities of Ogundeji by the State Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, it was learned.
