Ozoani said that the 28-year-old fake policeman (name withheld) was arrested at Iyana-Ipaja, Alimosho Council Area of the State, while putting on Man O War uniform with police barge on the shoulders.

“He has been parading himself as a genuine police constable. He puts on Man O War uniform with Mopol 20 Police barge on his shoulders.”

“Some police officers detected this and arrested him.”

“As soon as he was arrested, he swallowed the fake police identity card he was holding. He confessed he was a security guard in one hotel at Omole Estate.”

“He claimed that he bought the police barge from an undisclosed person he met in a beer parlour,” the police deputy spokesman said.

He said that three other suspects were arrested for alleged involvement in cult activities in Epe area of Lagos, where dangerous weapons were freely used during a fight between two groups.

Ozoani said that one of the suspects, a National Diploma, Year 2, Business Administration student from the Lagos State Polytechnic, allegedly claimed to belong to the Black Axe Confraternity.

He said that the Black Axe group had a clash with Eye Confraternity at Ansarudeen area of Epe over an undisclosed matter.
The spokesman said that two live cartridges were recovered from the suspects, while others escaped.

Ozoani said that all the suspects would be charged to court soon.
