NAF arrests 2 impostors
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.
