“When we challenged them, Chukwueke claimed to be a naval rating.  He left and returned a few minutes later with two naval ratings.

 “He brought out his identity card. One of the naval ratings he brought examined the ID card and said it was fake; we then arrested him.

“We asked the motorist what the problem was and he said they were robbing him of his personal effects. When we queried Chukwueke, he said he didn’t take any money from the man. However, when we searched him, we found N12,500 on him.”

“On that day, I was going home from work when I saw that the man had hit another person’s vehicle. The owner of the bashed car then seized his car key. He raised the alarm for help and I went there because he spoke Igbo.

“I discovered that he was drunk. He begged me to assist him get back his car key and he would pay me N3,000. I went to meet the owner of the bashed car and identified myself as a naval rating. I told him to release the car key to me and he did out of respect.

“I returned his key to him and demanded the N3,000 he promised; but he only gave me N1,000. He said that was all he had and asked me to search his pockets. I was doing this when the police came to challenge me. I know it was wrong for me to have the navy uniform, but I didn’t use it that night.”
