Police operatives in Lagos State have arrested dismissed Nigerian Navy personnel for allegedly impersonating serving as a military personnel and lending himself out to assault people.

The spokesman for the state police command, Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday in Lagos.

He said: “The suspect was apprehended while he and his boys were beating a hotel staff.

“The job was contracted to him by one of the hotel’s customers who had refused to stop smoking in a ‘no smoking’ area of the hotel.

He added that the suspect was dismissed from the Nigerian Navy 24 years ago but continued to parade himself as a serving personnel.

“The suspect was dismissed since 2000, but still parades himself as a naval officer,’’ Hundeyin added.

He assured that the suspect would soon be arraigned in court.
