The Delta State Police Command has arrested a suspected fake soldier, Fabian Ojumah, on the Sapele/Benin Road with 420 wraps of weed suspected to be Indian hemp.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, who stated this on Monday, said the suspect was caught with a fake army van.
“The suspect is not a real army officer. He was caught with 420 wraps of Indian hemp; where he was taking them to is not specified but, investigation is ongoing,”Onovwakpoyeya stated.
FASTLOADED TEAM gathered that the 44-year-old man from Abbi claimed to be a Major in the Nigerian Army when he was quizzed by the personnel of the Operation Safer Highways’ patrol team.
The fake military van, with plate number NA142- B01, used in conveying the 420 packs of compressed Indian Hemp, was recovered from the suspect.
The PPRO added that though Ojumah grew up in the barracks, he was never a soldier.
