The police prosecutor, Inspector Freddy Asu said that Akinbode was arrested while wearing the Nigerian police force uniform with the rank of a sergeant bearing a name tag of Taiwo Akinbode.

Asu further alleged that Akinbode had in his possession at the time of his arrest, a complete police uniform for Anti-Riot Police officers, one police Identity card and one certificate of voluntary retirement from the Nigerian police force, offences which are punishable under sections 77, 79 and 328 (d) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos state 2011.

When the charges were read to him, Akinbode pleaded not guilty to the charge and his counsel, Daniel Abbe, urged the court to grant the defendant bail in liberal terms as the defendant is still presumed innocent until proven guilty.

The presiding Magistrate, Mrs A. O Sholadoye, therefore, granted Akinbode bail in the sum of N250,000, with two sureties in like sum, while the case was adjourned to April 1, for mention.
