Nine persons have been arrested for impersonating the National Security Adviser, NSA, Babagana Mongun.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, announced the apprehension of the suspects on Monday while parading them alongside other suspected criminals.
The said nine suspects under the guise of working in the office of the National Security Adviser hijacked two containers loaded with goods.
“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 11am, 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,” Odumosu narrated.
