Four suspected fake soldiers escorting an unnamed politician have been arrested in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

Parading the suspects yesterday, who were dressed in military uniform, during a peace parley for candidates in the general election, the Commander, 34 Artillery Brigade, Obinze, Brigadier-General H. I. Bature, said fake soldiers have infiltrated the state to cause chaos during the elections.

“Two of these fake soldiers were arrested while escorting a politician. You will marvel at the kind of ammunition that were in their possession.  But no matter how much they disguise, we have a way of fishing out fake soldiers.”
Police Commissioner Dasuki Galadanchi has urged politicians to play by the rules and shun violence.
