Hakeem Odumosu, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, has paraded no fewer than 132 suspects for alleged murder, cultism, stealing, and impersonation of the Presidential Task Force, and swindling unsuspecting members of the public out of their properties in different parts of the state.
Odumosu said nine of the suspects impersonated the National Security Adviser when they stole two containers loaded with goods, adding that they were arrested following a report of their illegal activities.
The suspects were said to have been operating with a branded Toyota Hilux with number plate KRD 990 AP with the inscription, ‘Presidential Policing Marshals, IMAN Special Taskforce’.
The Commissioner of Police stated, “This deals with a case of impersonation, stealing and conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace, which was initially reported at the Area ’B’ Command headquarters and subsequently transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, for discreet investigation.
“On February 1, 2021, around 11 am, some suspects, Chijoke Okoro, Chijoke Joseph, Gideon Ijachi, Daniel Abraham, Nsika Eket, Stanley Akparakwu, Augustine Dosu, Solomon Emeka, and Benjamin Steve, were arrested for hijacking and diverting two container loads of goods and claiming that they had an instruction to confiscate them from the office of the National Security Adviser.”
The CP added that the investigation is ongoing.
