A Naval patrol team has arrested one Mr. Abdullahi Auwal Yakubu at Kara, Atani Road, Onitsha, Anambra State, for parading himself as a soldier.

Deputy Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa, in a statement issued on Thursday, said Abdullahi, was at the time of his arrest, dressed in Nigerian Army Camouflage Uniform and combat boots and could not provide correct answers to the questions raised by the patrol team.

The Army said further questioning revealed that the suspect had been in the habit of harassing and extorting members of the public under the guise of being a soldier, and presents fake identification card as evidence.

“The Patrol Team, on 10 April 2017, at about 2:50 p.m., handed the culprit to troops of 302 Artillery Regiment deployed for duty at the Onitsha Head Bridge. He has since been questioned at the Regiment’s Military Police Orderly Room, preparatory to handing him over to the Police for further action.

“Members of the public are please requested to take note of the occasional tendency of hoodlums to disguise as military personnel with intent to defraud unsuspecting members of the public. Members of the public are also requested to report such bad elements when seen, to the nearest Police station or any security office close to them.”
