On Sunday, police in Ogun State announced the arrest of an ex-convict, Segun Ogundeji, who impersonated a soldier at the Sango-Ota Police Divisional Headquarters in Ogun.
The declaration was made by DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the police spokesman in Ogun, in a statement issued in Ota.
According to Oyeyemi, Ogundeji was arrested when he went to the Sango-Ota Divisional Headquarters dressed in army camouflage to request the release of a suspect.
“When Ogundeji arrived at the station, he was confronted by an Air Force officer, Cpl. John Temitope, who accused him of failing to give him an official compliment, resulting in a quarrel between them.
“It was the argument that prompted the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Sango-Ota, CSP Godwin Idehai, to question them. During the interrogation, the police discovered that Ogundeji is not a member of the military.
“It was also discovered that Ogundeji was once convicted of impersonation by a court,” he added.
CP Edward Ajogun, the Commissioner of Police, has ordered a full investigation into the Ogundeji’s previous activities.
