Man Arrested For Possession Of Police Uniform

The Lagos State Police Command has detained Issa Majafara for allegedly being in possession of a police uniform.

According to the Police Public Relations Officer for the command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the suspect was apprehended by a surveillance patrol team on Tuesday at 6:30 pm on Iyana-Iba Market Road in the Ojo area of Lagos. Hundeyin stated that the suspect had no fixed address and was found with two pairs of trousers, a camouflage T-shirt, and a police face cap.

“During interrogation, the suspect claimed he picked the uniform from the dustbin. “The case is under investigation. The suspect will be arraigned in court soon for impersonation,” he said.

Hundeyin has cautioned members of the public to be wary of suspected criminals who wear police or other security uniforms. He has urged residents to report any impersonators to the police and has reminded them that genuine security personnel have their names printed on their uniform.

He advised residents who are unsure about someone wearing a security uniform, to report it to the nearest police station or patrol team.
