Fabian E. Ojumah, a 44-year-old man posing as a Major in the Nigerian Army, has been arrested by the Delta State Police Command with substance suspected to be Indian Hemp.
According to WuzupNigeria, the fake major was arrested by the operatives of the Safer Highways patrol team of the command on the 31 July 2020 along Sapele-Benin Road.
Fabian, who hails from Abbi in Ndokwa-West Local Government Area of Delta, was nabbed with a fake military van with plate number NA142- B01 conveying 420 packs of compressed weeds suspected to be Indian Hemp, the police said in a social media post on Friday.
According to the post, Fabian told the police that he has been involved in the business of Indian Hemp sale since 2014.
He reportedly admitted that the van belongs to him and that he bought the Army plate number from a serving army personnel.
He was said to have revealed that the Army uniform he wore was bought at Mammy market within the barracks.
This, it was gathered, was possible because he grew up in the barracks and thus has a military background, though not a soldier.
