5 People Who Played The Police

As we are made to believe and uphold, police officers are the most well-equipped for the work of crime fighting. They are expected to stop crime, apprehended criminals and see that justice runs its full course.

They live up to these expectations on most occasions, but nevertheless, some mean, funny and clever individuals have succeeded in fooling them while on their duty.



1. SARDUNA ONUM

Nigerian Police at Onikan Division, Ikoyi, Lagos arrested Sarduna Onum, a 20-year old man who specialized in feeding the police with false robbery alerts.

He would report to the police that he had been robbed and lost valuables, including handsets and cash.

Reports had it that, for about three years,  he successfully pulled this stunt in Bayelsa, Ogun, Rivers and other states in Nigeria. He even succeeded in getting the police to arrest innocent people who never stole anything from him. Sometimes these people are forced to pay for what they never stole.

On 8 March, 2016 he went to give a complaint at Onikan Police Division Ikoyi, Lagos on how he was robbed of the sum of N100,000 and a Techno phone at Ikoyi area of Lagos by some men.

The liar ran out of luck when a female police officer who had been transferred from Bayelsa noticed the discrepancies in his report and also recognized him as she had taken a report from him while in Bayelsa. She was said to have carried out an investigation in a similar case for the man in August 2015 at Bayelsa.

He was subsequently arrested.


2. JOHN OKORO

The 35-year old drug dealer who had served a prison term in India was due for deportation to Nigeria from India. But few hours before his deportation, he escaped from the Anti-Narcotics Cell Custody.

and one of the members of his gang, Animashaun apprehended by the police. First, he denied ever knowing that the man was a robber. But when he sensed that things will get rough, he confessed and subsequently, as is the custom of most criminals, blamed the devil for his actions.

A Police Public Relation Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi said that the pastor's arrest led to the apprehension of Animashaun who was an active member of three men gang which specialized in snatching exotic cars at gunpoint.

Animashaun confessed that his gang snatch exotic cars at Ajah Lagos and take them to the pastor who helps them in selling them. The pastor pays him N350,000 for the car and uses it for some weeks before reselling them to other people.

Gregory Afoko lied to the police when, in a statement, he said he was at home during the night that the former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Upper East Regional Chairman, Adams Mahama, was attacked with acid which caused him severe injuries that ultimately led to his death.


Dominic Apaaya Baba, Fifth prosecution witness in the trial of Gregory Afoko, one of two accused persons charged with the murder told the Criminal Court that the accused person lied to the Police when he wrote in his statement that he was asleep in his home when the acid attack happened on May 15, 2015.

According to his evidence before the court, Dominic Apaaya Baba, an NPP Polling station Secretary at Zorbisi electoral area in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region told the court that on that very day, he and the two accused persons were at a local bar drinking till about 10pm in the evening.
