Police applicant arrested for impersonating anti-robbery squad’s officer

An applicant seeking enrollment into the police force in the ongoing recruitment, Nathaniel Benjamin, has been arrested in Alakija area of Lagos State for parading himself as an officer of the anti-robbery squad.

Benjamin, who was arrested following a tip off, has been in detention at the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) of the state police command for the past few days.

Caught wearing anti-robbery squad’s officer’s t-shirt, a camouflage faze cap, a black trouser, and black boots, and carrying a black bag, the fake policeman said he inherited the uniform from his late brother, and had been using it to avoid paying fares.

Police recruitment: Applicants not qualified -IG

“My elder brother was a policeman, and he died last year in a car accident less than a year after he joined the force. So after his death, I took the uniform, and about three months ago have been wearing it, to avoid paying transport fares.

“I have been applying to the police Force for recruitment for a long time but I was not selected. I have also applied for the recent recruitment.

“I didn’t know that dressing in police uniform is an offence. It was my love for the Force that made me impersonate police and also the free ride that comes with being a police officer,” the police applicant said.
