In a significant development to prevent swindling the general public, the Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS) BEECROFT patrol team apprehended three impostors within the vicinity of Isolo, Lagos State.
This operation, conducted on the 1st of September 2023, was initiated in response to alarming reports of fraudulent individuals featuring the image of Chief of the Naval Staff Vice Admiral EI Ogalla in printed posters being circulated.
The impostors sought to deceive the public into believing there exists a false collaboration between an illegal security outfit, tagged Gallantry Intelligence Corps of Nigeria and the Nigerian Navy.
The arrested suspects identified as Oladele Opeyemi Daniel (23), Eriwole Ogunlana (24) and Mubarak Mayegun (24), are in custody and will be handed over to the appropriate agency for in-depth investigation and prosecution.
The Nigerian Navy appeals to the public to be mindful of unscrupulous elements, who want to inflict unnecessary hardship by using unpleasant means to lure innocent youths to commit resources for illegitimate employment.
The Nigerian Navy Under the leadership of Vice Admiral EI Ogalla, reaffirms its commitment to thwarting all forms of illegality and remains resolute in providing conducive employment for law-abiding citizens to go about their business as well as ensuring the safety and security of the public, which is essential for the economic prosperity of our nation.
The Navy also urge citizens to remain vigilant and report suspicious activities promptly, as this is crucial in preserving integrity of our defence forces and safeguarding the public from potential scams and fraudulent activities.
