Fabian Ojumah, a 44 years old man from Abbi in Ndokwa-West Local Government Area of Delta State has been arrested by the Delta State Police Command.
Operatives of the Safer Highways patrol team of the Delta State Police Command arrested Ojumah for posing to be a fake Army Major and was also involved in the sale of Indian Hemp.
A social media post by the police on Friday stated that the suspect was arrested on July 31, 2020, along Sapele-Benin Road.
According to the post, a fake military van with plate number NA142-B01 conveying 420 packs of compressed weeds suspected to be Indian Hemp was also recovered from the suspect.
Daily Times gathered that in his confession, Fabian told the police that he had been involved in the business of Indian Hemp sale since 2014.
He reportedly admitted that the van belongs to him and that he bought the Army plate number from a serving personnel.
Also, he was said to have revealed that the Army uniform he wore was bought at Mammy market within the barracks.
This was possible because he “grew up in the barracks and has a military background, though not a soldier”.
