Lagos State Commissioner of Police Fatai Owoseni paraded three persons impersonating soldiers, and one, who was impersonating Air Force personnel and three car snatchers.
The impersonators are Markus Gabriel (22) from Ngwa in Abia State, Ikemefuna Ude (39) from Agwu (Enugu). Their Air Force accomplice is Dare Tijani (28) from Ikire in Osun State.
Owoseni urged Lagosians to be part of the fight against criminals to enhance community policing.
“Even if you post one million policemen here in Lagos, it will not be enough.”
Owoseni said investigations revealed that Tijani, who claimed to be a dismissed personnel from the Nigerian Air Force, Kaduna, was never an Air force personnel adding that the suspect would soon be charged to court.
He said the suspect threatened to blow up the Command Headquarters because policemen at Ipaja Division refused to grant his friend bail.
The three fake soldiers were arrested at Iyana Oba area of Ojo.
