The operatives of Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested a man for impersonating Nigerian police and extorting money from people in Oshodi.
The suspect, Gregory Anyasodo, 47, from Owerri North, Imo State was arrested after stealing N125,000 from a trader, Mrs Emmanuella Joseph, who reported the matter to RRS.
A search around the area led to the arrest of Anyasodo and the recovery of a radio that looked like a walkie-talkie and a police identity card, which portrayed him as an Inspector attached to Lagos Taskforce and Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
The suspect acknowledged seizing the trader’s bag but said he did not steal her money.
The graphic artist who designed police ID card for Anyasodo was also arrested.
