There might be more trouble waiting for the Nigerian Police Sergeant who was caught on video and was recently dismissed from the force as he might be made to face charges bordering on impersonation.
Revelations came on Wednesday over a television programme that the Sergeant who was enlisted into the Nigeria Police Force with the name Chris Omeleze actually worked with a false identity. Callers told Channels Television that the dismissed policeman’s name is actually Osugwor Festus. It was alleged that he has been impersonating his old classmate, Chris Omaleze for the past 21 years.
Callers told the station that the disgraced policeman and the real Chris Omaleze attended Ndemili Grammar School and they both finished in 1987. One of those who claimed to know Osugwor well as revealed that he hails from Unuseti in Ndukwa West Local Government Area of Delta State.
Street Journal gathered that the bubble burst when the name Chris Omaleze suddenly went viral over the social media following the “bribe negotiation” video. Those who revealed the 21-year-old secret claimed they were surprised that the face that appeared was that of Osugwor and not Omaleze. Some reportedly even called Omaleze to notify him that his classmate had been caught using his name.
Police authorities are however yet to react to the development.
