Emmanuel, of no fixed address, is facing a two-count charge of unlawful possession of firearm and impersonation.
Brown said that the accused introduced himself as a police officer when he was found with two rounds of live ammunition
without licence at a police check point.
“’The accused wore a police vest with the inscription Rapid Response Squad and introduced himself as a police officer,
knowing that he is not,” she said.
The prosecutor added that the offences contravened sections 3(1) and 109(b) of the Robbery and Firearm (Special Provision)
Act, Laws of the Federation, 2004.
However, the accused pleaded not guilty and the Magistrate, Miss Temitope Adebutu, ordered that he should
be remanded in prison custody.
She then adjourned the matter until June 8 for bail application. (NAN)
