The Commissioner of Police, Ebonyi State Command, CP Aliyu Garba, announced the arrest of a fake police officer, Enyi Friday, who parades himself as an officer and deceives people in the state during the weekend.

Enyi, a resident of Umunwagu Idembia in Ezza South LGA of Ebonyi State, was arrested for impersonation.

Enyi was apprehended by Anyigor Lazarus, the Commander of Ebubeagu Security in Ezza South LGA, Ebonyi State.

The commissioner, in a statement, signed and made available to journalists in Abakaliki, through the police public relations officer, PPRO, SP Chris Anyanwu said the suspect has been handed over to the State Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.

He urged the general public to continue to partner with the Police in Ebonyi State in a bid to rid the communities of criminal elements.
