One Samuel Ngozi, a native of Isiala Ngwa local government area of Abia State, was on Wednesday apprehended and paraded at the Imo State Police Headquarters, Owerri, for posing as a Major-General in the Nigerian Army.
According to reports, the self-acclaimed Army Major had been terrorizing the residents of Nekede community in Owerri West local council area of Imo State.
The acting Commissioner of Police, Mr. Dave Akinremi, explained that the fake soldier was arrested by the Command while terrorizing Nekede people.
“The suspect was nabbed, following a credible tip-off.
“He would be charged to court soon for impersonation and felony, after proper investigation,” Dave said.
The Command, in a similar development, had also apprehended a 22-year-old Kelechi Ihemegbulam, a graduate of Information Science from Abia State University, Uturu, for alleged murder and cult related deeds.
The acting Commissioner disclosed that until this arrest, the suspect, Samuel, was in the wanted list of the Command, while saying that Ihemegbulam was a member of the notorious brotherhood fraternity.
“Ihemegbulam was wanted for his involvement in the murder of several persons within and around the state, as well as cult- related activities,” Dave said.
“He has since made useful statement to the police and would soon be charged to court,” he added.
