The state police commissioner, Musa Kimo who paraded the suspect alongside 213 other criminals, said the fake police officer identified as Kingsley Udoyen of No.3 stadium road, in Abak council area of the state, had defrauded and threatened unsuspecting members of the public.
The CP mentioned that one English pistol without magazine and ammunition, portraits of chief superintendent of police and Assistant Commissioner of police, three pairs of uniform, police belt, and fake police identity cards, as well as other documents, were recovered from the suspect.
Speaking to newsmen, the fake police officer said
”It started when I lost my job. I was with the police in Alagbon as a superintendent of police. I was dismissed in 2007 because of the illegal job I went for. I left Lagos in 2008 and went to Calabar where I met Glory Etim, my girlfriend. She is the one who bought all these police uniforms for me. She is a serving officer and works with the Police Secondary School.
I am a car dealer and I go to Cotonou. Since I was dismissed, I don’t have a job. I am 56 years old from Mbiaobong Ikot Etefia in Ikono and I am married with four children. I know what I am doing is against the law”, he said
