Lagos police seize fake policeman riding a motorbike.

Lagos police seize fake policeman riding a motorbike.

The suspect, identified as Felix Braimoh was arrested in Ejigbo area of Lagos. A 48-year-old man said he was forced to impersonate a policeman to feed his five children and also enjoy free transportation around Lagos.

It has been learnt that the suspect wore Mobile Police trousers and a beret, when he boarded a motorcycle from Cele Bus Stop, along Oshodi/Apapa expressway, to Ikotun.

A real Police Corporal riding a motorcycle engaged the fake policeman in a conversation about his division.

Briamoh’s inability to give a proper response aroused the suspicion of the Corporal, who reportedly stopped the motorbike and confronted the strange policeman.

Just then, a Police patrol team from Ikotun Division stopped to question both men and took them to the station.

During interrogation, Braimoh reportedly disclosed that he was not a policeman.

Asked where he got the police uniform from, Braimoh said: “A friend gave them to me: the pair of trousers is a mobile Police’s, the boots belong to a Man O’ War official, while I bought the beret from the market.”
