A soldier recently dismissed for fleeing Maiduguri for fear of the deadly Boko Haram insurgency, and relocating to Lagos to impersonate as a Lieutenant while extorting people, is in a fresh trouble. .
28-year-old Emmanuel Anthony, after his dismissal, was arraigned before an Ebute Meta Magistrate’s Court in April 2018, for posing as an army lieutenant to commit crime. .
His picture was reportedly spotted online by a man who identified him as a member of the gang that snatched his Lexus SUV on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway sometime in February 2018. .
The victim reported to the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Ibrahim, at the Zone 2 Police Command, Onikan, Lagos, who recalled the Akwa Ibom State indigene from court. .
The Zone 2 Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Dolapo Badmos, said Anthony confessed to the crime and would also be charged with robbery.
