Emmanuel told the police that he was given the ID card by an RRS official for N2,000.

“The ID card was given to me by Abba, an RRS official. I was the only one he gave it to. It was inside our hotel. They were guarding that place.

“So, when they vacated the place, he gave me a singlet and even a cap. The ID card was N2,000. It was given to me last year. The only day I presented it was when the VIO stopped me. I told them I was a retired officer.” he said

The police said they are investigating both cases and will charge the suspects to court soon.
