Lagos police detain fake soldier

On Sunday, the Lagos State Police Command reported that after Andy Edwards pretended to be an army captain, detectives had arrested him for armed robbery. According to reports, Edwards lured unsuspecting victims by disguising as a military commander before robbing them at gunpoint of their goods. According to information obtained, the 39-year-old guy pretended to be a modeling agent to entice women to audition, following which they were robbed of their automobiles and other belongings. From the suspect’s home, items were found that included a Ford Edge SUV with the license plate KRD 276 EG, a sewing machine, a POS machine with six SIM cards, two pairs of military camouflage uniforms, and one number plate with the number AFL469 GD. 

Benjamin Hundeyin, the State Police Command’s spokesperson, revealed this in a statement on Sunday. He said the command took action after receiving a complaint from one of Edwards’ victims, whose identity was kept secret. 

Detectives from the Lagos State Police Command have detained a fictitious Army Captain named Andy Edwards, 39, for armed robbery, according to Hundeyin. The fake soldier would invite women for auditions while assuming the identity of a modeling agent. At gunpoint, he would then rob the women of their cars and valuables. After a laborious investigation was conducted after one of his victims claimed that her Lexus RX330 SUV had been robbed, he was ultimately apprehended.
