Muhammed Tunde, a Nigerian Navy officer who was dismissed in 2000, has been arrested for impersonating a serving military official and coordinating assaults.

SP Benjamin, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed this in a statement released on Saturday.

Sharing a photo of the suspect, he wrote, “Dismissed Nigerian Navy personnel, Muhammed Tunde (dismissed since 2000), making people believe he’s a serving military personnel, charges N20,000 to bring his boys and beat up anybody for you.

“He was apprehended while he and his boys were beating hotel staff, a job contracted to him by one of the hotel customers who was asked to stop smoking in a ‘no smoking’ area of the hotel. Prosecution follows!”
