Operatives of the Nigerian Navy have arrested a total of 19 imposters in the First Quarter of 2019. A breakdown of those arrested shows that 13 were arrested in Calabar/Ikang area, 5 in Yenogoa/Port Harcourt area and 1 in Lagos area. Typically, these criminals were arrested either in possession of fake Navy ID Card or dressed in Navy uniforms (Camouflage or Blue Rig).

For the avoidance of doubt, the NN wishes to inform the general public that wearing and illegal possession of military accoutrements is unlawful and punishable under Section 109, 110 and 251 of Nigerian Criminal Code. To this end, members of the general public are advised not to patronize such unscrupulous individuals in any engagement. The general public is also advised to report to the nearest Naval, Army, Air Force or Police unit any suspicious individual wearing a naval uniform and engaging in non-military or naval duties.

Please you are kindly requested to disseminate the information to the general public. Thank you for your usual cooperation.
