Three men have been arrested by the Ogun State Police for allegedly parading themselves as soldiers.
The trio: Olanrewaju Adebayo, 33, Jacob Onebi, 36 and Olabode Oluwaseun, 35, were arrested for allegedly engaging in several illegal activities in the Agbado area of the state.
The State Police Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed that the suspects were apprehended in military camouflage on March 3.
Oyeyemi said the suspects had initially disguised themselves as officers of the 174 Battalion Ikorodu, Lagos state, adding that two of them later confessed under interrogation that they had been dismissed from the Nigerian Army years ago.
The third suspect, it was learnt, is a friend of the two dismissed soldiers and was co-opted into their unlawful activities.
It was learnt that the DPO of Agbado division SP Kuranga Yero, was on routine patrol of his area with his patrol team when he sighted the suspects, accosted them and demanded their proper identity.
The case has been transferred to the State CID, on the directives of the Commissioner of Police, for further investigation.
