fake-female-officer

The Nigerian Army has said that a woman who was arrested wearing military uniforms, with a fake identity card, was travelling alone and was not carrying any improvised Explosive Device, IED.

Rumours were rife on social media Friday that a fake female officer was arrested with two kids along Keffi/Abuja way. The reports also claimed they all had IEDs on them.

However, the Nigerian Army said the woman was arrested at Gwagwalada and had falsely claimed to be a Major in the Nigerian Army.

PRNigeria, a firm that circulates press releases for Nigerian security outfits, said it gathered that the fake officer who also claimed to be a serving medical doctor, was alone when she was arrested.

“Contrary to insinuation, the fake Major Juliana Gumel was not carrying Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) nor was she with kids when she was arrested,” the statement said.

Army spokesperson, Sani Usman, said the arrested perpetrator was undergoing interrogation.

“She claimed to be a Medical Doctor and a ‘major’ with a fake Private Soldier’s outdated identity card. But not with IED. I believe Guards Brigade or the Nigeria Police will issue a formal statement on it, ” Mr. Usman said.

    Is Nigeria back to military rule? The lady was travelling in a Keffi/Abuja way — a non-war area. This is police matter and has nothing to do with the army.

      If she is found to be an imposter then she can be handed over to the police for prosecution

    When things happen we say Fulani herdsmen or bokoharam. I think it’s hightime we see security as our collective responsibility not blame game all the time.
