A man in Lagos State who was caught impersonating a police officer has revealed the reason behind his actions and it is far from noble.
Felix Braimoh, the suspect, said that he decided to resort to impersonating a policeman in order to enjoy free transportation around the state.
According to reports, the father of five who was clad in Mobile Police trousers and a beret, took a motorcycle from Cele Bus Stop, along Oshodi/Apapa expressway, to the Ikotun area of the state.
However, on reaching Ejigbo the motorcycle rider, a Police Corporal, engaged Briamoh in a conversation about his division.
His inability to give a proper response aroused the suspicion of the rider, who reportedly stopped the motorbike and confronted Braimoh.
Just then, a Police patrol team from Ikotun Division stopped to question both men and took them to the station.
During interrogation, Braimoh reportedly disclosed that he was not a policeman.
Asked where he got the police uniform from, Braimoh said: “A friend gave them to me.
“The pair of trousers is a mobile Police’s, the boots belong to a Man O’ War official, while I bought the beret from the market.”
