Fake soldier apprehended for duping man

The partnership between the naval command and residents of the area led to the arrest of the suspects.

Imprisonment.

This was disclosed on Tuesday, August 23, 2016, by Navy Capt. Ibrahim Nurudeen, the commandant, Nigerian Navy School of Health Sciences in Offa, Kwara.

Olalekan was arrested with an accomplice for using an identity card registered with the Nigeria Army to extort money from an unsuspecting man.

According to Nurudeen, the chemistry between residents of the area and the naval command led to the arrest of the suspects, who were trying to cash money at the bank before their arrest.

“They disguised as army personnel to deceive their victim and in the process, collected a cheque for N20, 000 from him."

“They had also gone to the branch of the Union Bank in the community, in an attempt to cash the said amount."

“But for the security synergy that existed between the Navy and the community, they were promptly arrested.”

The men have been handed over to the army as investigation continues into the matter.
