The 81 Division Nigerian Army operatives yesterday paraded 13 alleged imposters and criminals who were arrested within Lagos and Ogun States. It was learnt that the suspects paraded themselves at different locations as military officers, extorting and assaulting civilians.
According to the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 81 Division, Maj-Gen. Enobong Udo, the suspects were apprehended between February and April adding that they were found with various military accoutrements.
Among the suspects were four dismissed military personnel and civilians, who aided these impostors by making fake military ID cards and providing them with military accoutrements used to carry out their evil acts.
The General has however urged members of the public to always reach out and call certain numbers when in doubts or see persons in uniform engaged in any form of illegality.
