A 34-year-old man, identified as Olusegun Abe, has been arrested by the Nigerian Air Force for allegedly parading himself as an officer of the force.
The suspect allegedly claimed to be a flight lieutenant.
The impostor, fully dressed in military camouflage, reportedly planned to defraud a family member of a late NAF pilot, Flight Lieutenant Ohai Idonije, who was recently killed by Boko Haram insurgents.
It was learnt that the suspect had approached a sister of the deceased, Mrs Tola Gbadamosi, under the guise of being her late brother’s senior colleague at NAF, and promised to assist the family in claiming the deceased’s benefits. (Punch)
