Fake air force officer bags 6 months in prison for impersonation
Twenty-five year old Abdulmajid Mohammed has been sent to six months in prison by a Zuba Grade I Area Court in Abuja on Friday for impersonating an air force officer.
Charged by the police with one count of impersonation, Mr Mohammed had gone to the Zuba fruit market intimidating people and parading himself as an air force officer.
On August 23, the complainant, Daniel Williams, a security guard in the fruit market, reported the matter at the Zuba police station.
When the police arrested the suspect, an air force identity card bearing the convict’s name and police tear gas can were recovered from him.
The prosecutor, Chinedu Ogad, added that during the police investigation, the convict made a confessional statement. He said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 132 and 133 of the Penal Code.
Having earlier pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency, the Area Court judge, Umar Angulu, sentenced him to six years in prison, with no option of fine.
