Fake soldiers arrested in Nigeria – army

The Nigerian army says it has arrested 12 people in the south-west of the country for pretending to be soldiers.

The officer in charge of the regional army division, Maj Gen Umar Thama Musa, said the suspects were detained in Lagos and Ogun states, and had been wearing full military uniforms.

He said since January last year 150 such imposters had been arrested.

Fake soldiers often engage in illicit activities such as mounting roadblocks to extort motorists.
