A fake police officer identified as Vicent Enuneku has been arrested for impersonating an Assistant Superintendent of Police and being in possession of a substance suspected to be Indian hemp.
Akwa Ibom Police Spokesperson, Odiko Macdon said the suspect from Ndokwa Local Government Area of Delta State, was arrested by the operatives of the Anti-Cultism squad of the command on the 28th of June, 2022.
The suspect who specializes in extorting money from the unsuspecting public and using his fake ID card to secure easy passage at checkpoints while transporting Indian hemp into the state, ran out of luck while trying to use the fake ID card to prevent the arrest of a wanted criminal.
The statement read;
“The CP has warned impersonators of Police and other Agencies to desist forthwith or have the Police to contend with. The CP gave the warning after personnel of the Anti-cultism Squad of the Command arrested one Vincent Sampson Enuneku, 43 years old from Ndokwa Local Government Area of Delta State, for impersonation and being in possession of large substance, suspected to be Indian hemp.
“The suspect was arrested on the 28th of June, 2022, in Uyo while attempting to use his fake Assistant Superintendent of Police ID card to prevent the arrest of a wanted criminal.
“Investigation revealed that the suspect uses the ID card to pass through checkpoints freely while transporting Indian hemp and other prohibited items to Akwa Ibom State.
“He is also good at using the ID card to extort and harass innocent members of the public, thereby bringing the image of the Force to disrepute. Exhibits recovered from the suspect include fake Police ID Card and a large quantity of Indian hemp.”
