Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Eu­gene Agha, La­gos

The 107 Nige­rian Air Force (NAF) camp, La­gos, yes­ter­day, pa­raded two im­pos­tors, Abio­dun Akin­sanya and Moses John­son, for al­legedly claim­ing to be per­son­nel of the Nige­rian Air Force.

At the time of their ar­rest, the sus­pects were al­legedly in pos­ses­sion of mil­i­tary cam­ou­flage.

The sus­pects were ar­rested by NAF Provost Air Sta­tion op­er­a­tives who were on pa­trol of the Lang­basa area of Ajah, La­gos.

It was also learnt that at the time of their ar­rest the sus­pects pro­duced fake iden­tity cards af­ter iden­ti­fy­ing them­selves as NAF per­son­nel.

Com­man­der 107 NAF Camp, Air Com­modore Abubakar Yusuf, who pa­raded them be­fore news­men said it was their fake ID cards that gave them away, as the ID cards were the old ones used by the NAF be­fore they were changed to the new ones with chip.

Af­ter pre­lim­i­nary in­ter­ro­ga­tion, the NAF per­son­nel stormed their res­i­dences and un­earthed sev­eral mil­i­tary uni­forms, es­pe­cially desert cam­ou­flages and ac­cou­trements, in­clud­ing boots and cus­tomised NAF belts.

He added, “Fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions re­vealed that they were in pos­ses­sion of mil­i­tary kits. They will be handed over to the De­part­ment of State Se­cu­rity Ser­vices (DSS) for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions and pos­si­ble pros­e­cu­tion.
