The Imo State police command has arrested a 37-year-old man, Fabian Enudi, who was caught in Ohaji Egbema Local government area, Imo state, while transporting 53 bags of Cannabis Sativa also known as Indian hemp.
Briefing journalists at the police headquarters in Owerri, the Imo state capital, the Commissioner for Police Mr .Mohammed Katsina said the suspect who was dressed in an army uniform was intercepted by the police special ambush team along Owerri-Port Harcourt road.
The fake soldier was arrested in a black Nissan Pathfinder jeep which carried a fake registration number LU366ABJ.
Mr. Katsina said after much interrogation, the police discovered that he is an impostor and he is neither an army officer nor officer of any of the security operatives. The military uniform was only to deceive members of the public and security operatives.
Fabian Enudi, a native of Abbi village, Abraka Delta state had transported the 53 bags from Kwale in Delta state.
Mr. Enudi, who confessed to have committed the offence told Channels Television that he has been into the business for over a year and the army uniform belong to his late father who was an army officer.
The Command also paraded a 41 year old man a native of Ezinihitte Mbaise in Imo state who was alleged to have forcefully and illegally defiled a 13 year old girl by disguising to be a philanthropist representing a popular non-governmental organisation in Nigeria.
He claimed to have the mandate of the NGO to scout for children of poor parentage in a guise to sponsor their education.
The suspect however denied all the allegations leveled against him, claiming to be an engineer and a businessman and that he’s had nothing to do any young girl.
