A mild drama took place on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway last Wednesday when a self-acclaimed soldier took to his heels on sighting a Nigerian Army operational vehicle on the ever-busy road.
The “soldier”, 39-year-old Charles Adam, was apparently hanging out on the road for an escort job when suddenly he created a scene that aroused suspicion.
The police patrol men from the Redeemed Camp Division, witnessed the strange development and suspected him as an impostor.
The eagle-eyed policemen consequently gave him a hot chase, caught up and apprehended him.
According to Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a press statement made available to Crimepuzzle, “He was taken before the DPO, CSP Olaiya Martins, who thoroughly interrogated him, leading to his confession as a fake soldier, adding that he always dressed like that to escort vehicles as well as engage in some other illegal military duties.
