By Esther Onyegbula
operatives of the state police command have arrested a dismissed policeman for carrying out illegal duty in Lagos.
He was paraded alongside a fake doctor, Abdulrahman Mohammed, by the state commissioner of police Mr. Edgal Imohimi, at the state command yesterday.
The dismissed policeman , Gimba Zalaba, said he was dismissed in 2015 because he travelled without permission for one month.
“The police declared me a deserter and that was what led to my dismissal. Someone called me to come and carry out a security job but I did not have money so I wore the uniform so I can get free ride. I was however arrested under the bridge at Ikeja”.
The CP disclosed that Abdulrahman Mohammed was arrested by detectives from the Area D command for operating a medical doctor at 3 Bamishiele Street at Idi-Araba.
According to him, Mohammed has been impersonating as a medical doctor for the past four years, “he had been administrating intravenous injections, conducting medical test on his patients, taking urine and blood samples from his patients.
