0

The 323 Artillery Brigade of the Nigerian Army, Akure, Ondo
State, has arrested a woman, Angela Omieh, for posing as a soldier.

Sets of military uniform, police extract and a sworn
affidavit for loss of her military identity card were said to have been found
with her.
The Public Relations Officer of the brigade, Captain Ademola
Adegoke, said Omieh was arrested following a report by her boyfriend.
According to him, Omieh, who resides in Mile 3, Diobu, Port
Harcourt, Rivers State, was discovered to be in possession of two pairs of
camouflage, camouflage T-shirt and short, one pair of desert boot, one jungle
hat and three handsets.
He said the suspect had been parading herself as a soldier
attached to the 149 Battalion, but deployed to Joint Task Force, Warri for
duty.
Adegoke explained that the suspect’s boyfriend, Mr. Collins
Jegede, narrated how she met Omieh on a social network where she appeared in
military outfit.
Jegede said he wooed her and she paid him a visit in January
2014 in full military uniform.
Jegede was also said to have reciprocated the visit, but was
surprised that Onieh lodged him in a hotel at the Ijaiye area of Lagos State
instead of 149 Battalion, Ojo Military Barracks, where she had claimed to be
working.
Adegoke said, “Jegede reported the case to the
officer-in-charge of a military checkpoint at Owo following his suspicion that
his girlfriend was a fake soldier.”
The suspect admitted that she was fake, adding that it was
meant to make ends meet.

She said, “I bought the uniform from Army depot in Zaria. I
attended the Nigerian Army depot in Zaria, Kaduna State. I could not continue
my education when my father died, so I decided to buy the kits to help me
travel to Cotonou, Benin Republic for business with ease.”
