A fake policeman, identified as Hassan Abuka, has been arrested in Anambra State for stealing a car in Lagos.
Abuka had stolen a Toyota Corolla car from Lagos but the police tracked him to Anambra where he was eventually arrested.
Confirming the arrest, Anambra State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, said in a statement that the suspect was arrested after the use of a geo-location technological equipment.
Mohammed said, “At about 4:30 pm, following intelligence report, Police operatives attached to the Command Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) arrested at Ihiala, one Hassan Abuka ‘m’ aged 33 years of Otukpo, Benue State fully dressed in Police camouflage uniform bearing a DSP rank and one Ismaila Ahmed ‘m’ aged 37 years also of Otukpo, Benue State.
“The suspects, who specialise in impersonating Police to deceive their victims snatched a Toyota Corolla car, Reg number Lagos AGL 357 FC, from a yet to be identified victim in Lagos and were geo-located at their hideout in Anambra State.
“Exhibits recovered in their possession include the snatched vehicle and additional vehicle plate number Lagos FKJ 701 FR.”
Haruna said the suspects had voluntarily confessed to the crime and would be charged to court for prosecution after the conclusion of investigation.
