‘Ex-convict disguised as soldier’ arrested during visit to police station in Ogun

By NAN



The Ogun police command says an ex-convict, who allegedly disguised as a soldier, has been arrested at the Sango Ota divisional headquarters.


Abimbola Oyeyemi, Ogun police spokesperson, disclosed this in a statement issued on Sunday.

According to NAN, the suspect, identified as Segun Ogundeji, was described as an ex-convict who had been earlier prosecuted for impersonation.

The suspect was said to have been arrested when he went to the Sango-Ota divisional headquarters, fully dressed in army uniform, to solicit the release of a suspect.


“On getting to the station, Ogundeji met an air force man, one Cpl. John Temitope, who accused him of failure to give him official compliment, as a result of which a quarrel ensued between them,” the statement reads.

“It was the quarrel that led the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Sango-Ota, CSP Godwin Idehai, to interrogate them. It was during the interrogation that the police discovered that Ogundeji is not a military man.

“It was also discovered that a court once convicted Ogundeji for impersonation.”


The Ogun police spokesman added that Edward Ajogun, commissioner of police in the state, has directed that a full investigation be conducted into the past activities of the suspect.
