A fake Superintendent of Police, George Oliseh, was paraded on Wednesday at the Ogun State Police Command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, for being in possession of 10 bags of substance believed to be marijuana.
The fake Superintendent, who was dressed in police uniform and had an identity card stating his rank, was nabbed alongside one Isaac Isicheli, who claimed to be his brother-in-law, on Sunday at Sagamu while bringing bags of hemp from Owo, Ondo State in his Toyota Camry car.
Oliseh revealed in his statement that he was a policeman but was dismissed from the force after suffering partial stroke on his left hand and leg.
The 64-year-old said the pressure of taking care of 23 children and five wives led him into the illicit hemp business introduced to him by an Inspector he identified as Umukoro, who is now late.
“It was Inspector Umukoro, an Urhobo man from Delta, who introduced the business to me, and I embraced it. I was a former corporal in the police. I joined the force in 2002, but I was dismissed in 2009.
“It was frustration and poverty that forced me into the business, because I have to take care of 23 children and five wives, though two had left.” Oliseh said.
The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Abdulmajid Ali, said Oliseh would be made to face the music for his crime.
