The Cross River state police command on Friday said it had arrested one Jeremiah Ogar for the possession of a naval cap and alleged impersonation.

Hafiz Inuwa, the state commissioner of police, made this known while presenting the suspect to journalists in Calabar.

He said Ogar was arrested on April 26 at Utukwang village in Obudu local government area of the state.

He also said the suspect had been allegedly using the fake status of a navy captain to defraud and intimidate unsuspecting members of the public in the area.

“In our efforts to rid the state of heinous crimes and criminal activities, men of the operatives attached to obudu division of the Nigeria police on April 26 arrested one fake navy captain, Jeremiah Ogar, aged 31,” Inuwa said.

“The suspect was arrested with a navy cap and he was parading himself as a navy captain and using same to defraud and intimidate unsuspecting members of the public.

“Investigation is ongoing to ascertain the owner of the said cap and how he came about it. We remain committed in our efforts to rid the state of all criminal activities.”

Ogar, a commercial motorcycle rider, told NAN that he bought the cap in the market alongside nine of his friends.

“I bought the cap in the market because I fell in love with the design,” he said.

“I have not been using the cap to terrorise, intimidate or defraud anybody in this community. I am shocked why the police arrested me.”
