Operatives of the Ogun State Social Orientation and Safety Corps, have arrested a suspected fake soldier, Sanni Ayuba, who forcefully intervened to stop the arrest of some suspected cultists in the Adigbe area of the Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state on Monday.
The Corps State Commander, Soji Ganzallo, disclosed this in a statement issued on Tuesday, through the Corps Public Relations Officer, Moruf Yusuf.
Ganzallo noted that the fake soldier was arrested after he forcefully hijacked the arrest of some suspected cultists in the area, an action which aided the escape of the suspected cultists.
He said, “ACC Adesina Adedamola of the Directorate of Operation of the Corps deployed his team to get some suspected cult boys arrested at a location, and they captured two of them and cuffed them, but to the Corps dismay, Sanni Ayuba, who was at the scene flashed a military identity card and stopped the officers from performing their duties and the suspects were hijacked while they escaped with handcuffs.
“The suspected fake military man was later arrested and thoroughly investigated, while the other two accomplices who claimed to be Naval officers, escaped arrest.”
Ganzallo added that the suspect, who was caught with some exhibits which included an Army camouflage scarf, fake Army identity card, knife, mobile phone, and a dog chain with arms pendants, confessed to impersonation after interrogation.
He noted that the suspect and the exhibits have been transferred to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ogun State Police Command for further investigation.
