It was gathered that the suspect collected the sum of N30,000 from the complainant, whose name was withheld, with the promise to assist him secure employment into the Nigeria Customs Service.

Trouble started when Ajewole failed to fulfil his end of the bargain after four months, leading the complainant to report the case to the police.

The police trailed the suspect to
Igando, where he was arrested.

The police spokesperson, Ngozi Braide, said the suspect and his gang had been impersonating police officers for three years before Ajewole’s arrest.

Braide added that investigations revealed that the suspect used Igando as his base, and had lied to his wife and other family members that he was in the Police Force.

In his account, Ajewole said he paid one Inspector Okuju, a suspected member of the syndicate, N7,000 for the police uniform.

One Julius Fadolamu was also arrested for alleged impersonation of a police officer, while four others were said to be on the run.
