A certain “Captain Olugboyega Olubiyi Ayokunle” has been declared wanted by the Nigerian Navy for Illegal possession of Firearms and Impersonation.
Olugboyega fraudulently collected N100,000 as mobilization fee from one Olugbemiga Ayeni to investigate an alleged deal involving another naval personnel identified as Prince Ayeni.
A press statement released by the Director of Naval Information, Commodore Chris Ezekobe, read;
“In view of the report and a formal complaint forwarded to the Naval Headquarters by Olugbemiga Ayeni on the behavior of the said “Captain Olugboyega Olubiyi Ayokunle,” the Nigerian Navy carried out a thorough investigation on the identity of the names mentioned and discovered that the men who are parading as officers of the Nigerian Navy are imposters.
“To this end, the Nigerian Navy wishes to state categorically that the said Prince Aderemi is not a naval rating as alleged.
“Also the Olugboyega Olubiyi Ayokunle is not a Nigerian Navy officer. The naval uniform insignia worn by the suspect is fake as such not that of the Nigerian Navy.
“Therefore he cannot be serving in the Western Naval Command of the Nigerian Navy as alleged in the news report.
“Consequently, the said “Captain O.A Olugboyega is a wanted person by the Nigerian Navy for offences ranging from impersonation and illegal possession of fire arms as shown in the attached pictures.
“The general public is advised to henceforth desist from dealing with the imposters who claim to be in the Service of the Nigerian Navy, as the Service will not be responsible for their fraudulent activities.
“When and wherever sighted, they should be apprehended and handed over to the nearest naval or military formation for prompt action.”
