A 54-year old woman, Mrs. Christiana Otukogbe, who reportedly recruited herself into the Nigeria Police Force and operated in that capacity over the years, has finally been arrested for impersonation in Lagos State.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the suspect, Christiana Otukogbe, was arrested by the Police at Ipaja Division.
The woman, Christiana ran into trouble after the Police went to Maborukose Street in Ipaja to arrest a criminal suspect, Samson Francis, who is the grandchild to Mrs. Christiana and she aided his escape as she obstructed the Police from performing their duty.
When the information got to the DPO, CSP Tokumbo Aboniwonda, she directed Christiana to meet with her in order to know why she would obstruct officers on duty whereas she was a Police woman.
It was during interrogation that it was discovered that she was not a genuine Police officer and her house was searched. The Police uniform, which she obtained to perform her illegal duties, was recovered as an exhibit.
She eventually confessed that she was not a genuine Police officer despite the fact that she had worked in many places as an officer.
Having been found culpable, the Police subsequently charged her before the Ogba Magistrates Court for obstruction of arrest and impersonation.
