The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has apprehended a man, Olusegun Abe, for  impersonating  as Flight Lieutenant SA Abe.

The 34-year-old suspect almost defrauded a family member of a late NAF pilot, Flight Lieutenant Ohai Idonije, who was recently killed by Bokoharam insurgents.

The impostor, who fully dressed in a Nigerian military woodland camouflage uniform, had earlier approached a sister to the deceased, Mrs Tola Gbadamosi, under the guise of being her late brother’s senior colleague at the NAF, and promised to assist the family in claiming the benefits of the deceased.

The suspect after being nabbed, said he didn’t know what came over him.
