“People need to be very careful these days as there are so many Babylonians posing as soldiers. I am very proud of the Nigerian Army and OC, MP, Ojo Cantonment, Capt. A.S Atunwa, for his effective investigations and taking action in this matter.

“We give thanks to the Most High God. The picture below is the picture of the very fake soldier. He has been arrested by the military police, Ojo cantonment. His name is Muhammed Ishaq. Thank you Nigerian Army, Ojo cantonment.”
