The Nigeria Police on Tuesday spoke again on the trending photograph of a man in the uniform of Assistant Commissioner of Police arrested alongside some criminals, including kidnappers.
The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Frank Mba, said in a statement that the suspect in Police uniform, Kingsley Udoyen, is a fake Police Office.
Udoyen, 56, is of 3, Stadium Road, Abak, Akwa Ibom State.
He was arrested on January 2, 2019 by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command.
He was paraded with other criminal elements by the then Commissioner, Akwa Ibom State Police Command, Musa Kimo, who is now the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 6 Headquarters, Calabar.
Mba said: “The suspect is an impersonator who was posing as an Assistant Commissioner of Police to defraud and threaten unsuspecting members of the public before he ran out of luck and was subsequently arrested.
“He has since been arraigned in a competent court of law and he is currently undergoing criminal prosecution at the Magistrate Court, Abak, Akwa Ibom State.
