Acting on credible intelligence, Police Operatives from Mabushi Division in the Federal Capital Territory Police Command have arrested one Mohammed Abdulrahman at Mabushi for impersonating as a Superintendent of Police and an operative of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The spokesperson of the Command, Mariam Yusuf, revealed this in a statement on Tuesday.
Yusuf said the suspect is notorious for defrauding and attacking unsuspecting members of the public by parading himself as a member of the Nigeria Police Force.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect habitually harasses residents along Mabushi Express axis under the façade of being a Police Officer, thereby smearing the dignified image of the Nigeria Police Force.
The exhibits recovered from the suspect were two warrant cards, one handcuff, one tear spray, one black belt, one red face cap, one black belt, one cutlass and one Toyota Camry black colour, with registration number: AGL 541 ET.
While reassuring FCT residents of the Command’s unflinching commitment towards the protection of lives and property, the Command’s Commissioner, Bala Ciroma, wished all residents a prosperous and peaceful year ahead.
