On Tuesday, the police in Ebonyi State confirmed the arrest of Moris Mbam, a 25-year old man, who had been leading the public into believing the false notion of his being an officer of the Nigerian armed forces.

According to correspondents in the State, the suspect hails from the Okpuitim community in the Izzi Local Government Area of the state and had been on the run since December 25, 2018, after he allegedly held occupants of a residential building in Onu-Ebonyi, a suburb of Abakakili metropolis, hostage for over two hours.

Briefing journalists on the success recorded by the command before, during and after the Christmas and New Year celebrations, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Muhammed Mustafa, pointed out that Mbam was nabbed by police operatives attached to the Central Police Station, Abakaliki, at a commercial bank in Enugu, while attempting to make a withdrawal.
