The Kebbi State Area Command of the Nigeria Police Force has successfully apprehended an individual impersonating a military officer. The suspect, named Faisal Saidu, hails from Kawarin Kudi Zango local government in Katsina state.
Saidu had allegedly negotiated a deal for a Honda Jazz with car dealers in Kebbi, settling on a price of two million, two hundred thousand naira (N2,200,000). Disguised in a military uniform, he took the car for a test drive but failed to return it.
His extended absence raised concerns among the car’s owners, who then proceeded to file a report with the police. Promptly following the report, the police commenced a search operation, eventually locating and arresting the impostor in Katsina state.
The accused has since admitted responsibility for the theft, and the vehicle has been retrieved. Saidu is currently in police custody, awaiting court proceedings pending the conclusion of investigations.
Kebbi’s Police Commissioner, Musa Titus, has issued a stern warning to potential criminals, assuring them of the police force’s readiness to apprehend any lawbreakers in the region.
