    I make N15,000 daily as fake police officer – Suspect confesses in Lagos

    A 47-year-old fake police officer, identified as Gregory Anyasodo, from Owerri North, Imo State who was apprehended has confessed how he made N15,000 daily.

    Gregory was arrested by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Police Command while extorting money from people in Oshodi area of the state.

    He was arrested after he was reported to RRS officials stationed in Oshodi by a victim who accused him of threatening to arrest her and confiscating her bag containing 150,000 naira. 

    After a thorough search around the area, a radio that looked like a walkie-talkie and a police identity card was found, which portrayed him as an Inspector with the number 14873, attached to Lagos Taskforce and Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

    After being arrested and put in police custody, Gregory told the newsmen: 

    "I have been in the trade since December 2016. I came to Lagos before Xmas in preparation for The Lord’s Chosen convention in Lagos, which was held in February, 2017 at Ijesha.
    “My early coming for the programme was for me to seize that opportunity to look for job in Lagos. When I couldn’t get a job, I ventured into impersonating the police.
    “I have been arrested 6 times in Owerri for impersonating WAEC and JAMB officials. I am a father of six. I left my wife with six children when I was coming to Lagos. I have been sleeping in hotels since I got to Lagos.
    “I show them my identity card and I threaten to invite my colleagues if they failed to settle me. I am sorry, I have not sent a dime to my wife in Owerri to take care of the six children I left in her possession but occasionally, I call her.”
