A Supernumerary (SPU) Police Inspector, Felix Igba, has been arrested for allegedly issuing forged promotion signals to some of his colleagues.
Igba was said to have collected N30,000 per SPY policeman for the signal promoting each officer.
It was gathered that the signal which purportedly emanated from the Force Welfare Department, was signed by an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) with the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID).
Disturbed by the wide circulation of the forged promotion signals, ACP Omolara Oloruntola, it was learnt, complained last October 28, provoking investigation by the police command.
Upon interrogation, Igba allegedly confessed that the N30,000 collected from each officer was remitted to one Supol Africa, allegedly serving at the Force Headquarters Annex.
Igba, who was paraded on Friday by Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni could, however, not give the whereabouts of the said Supol Africa.
He could not also explain how he obtained police rank and badge, which he is not entitled to as a spy.
