Osun Residents Beware: Amotekun Busts Imposter Police Duo, Unveils Daring Theft Scheme

The Osun Amotekun Corps has made a significant arrest in the town of Ile-Ife, Osun State. Two individuals, Isaiah Friday Ezekiel and John Apata Koffi, have been apprehended for impersonating police officers and engaging in theft.

Brig-Gen. Bashir Adewinbi, the State Commander of the Amotekun Corps, released a statement on Friday detailing the incident. According to the statement, the suspects collaborated to burglarize a residence in Eleweran Kajola Village, where they made off with a bag of cement. In order to carry out their criminal activities, Ezekiel would dress up in a mobile police uniform, while Koffi would wear a Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) beret.

Following a complaint filed by a concerned resident, the Ile-Ife Amotekun Command quickly took action. Around 11:00 PM on Thursday, Ezekiel was spotted with a suspicious bag of cement. The Amotekun operatives promptly arrested him and subsequently took both suspects into custody.

During the investigation, a number of incriminating items were discovered in the possession of the two individuals. These items included a police uniform, a police beret, an iron toy gun, and charms. The suspects did not shy away from admitting their guilt. They confessed to carrying out similar criminal activities in the past, using their disguises as police officers to extort innocent people.

With the evidence at hand, the Amotekun Corps has handed the suspects over to the police for further investigation and interrogation. It is hoped that this incident serves as a warning to others who may attempt to exploit their positions for personal gain.
