The police in Lagos State have arrested a 65-year-old man, Jeremiah Joseph, who presented himself as an army lieutenant to one Ignatius.

The command’s spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this through his Twitter handle Tuesday.

He said the fake lieutenant promised to arrange soldiers to help the said Ignatius recover N4.5m owed him by some people in Delta State and that he received N120,000 for the service and thereafter absconded.

He added that found in his apartment were a fake army identity card and uniform.
