A 24-year-old woman has been arrested for impersonation by the Osun State Police Command.

The arrest of the woman who impersonated a police officer was paraded on Wednesday in Osogbo.

According to the Osun Police Command spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, the suspect allegedly impersonated a police officer to rob different Point of Sale (POS) operators in Osogbo, the capital.

Opalola told journalists that she was taken into custody on Tuesday after her rescue from a mob.

"The personnel who saved her from lynching took her to Ata-Oja Police Division in Osogbo.

“In April, the suspect went to a PoS stand and presented herself as a police officer serving at Ata-Oja Police Division.

“The ‘arrested’ the sales girl and seized her bag containing a PoS machine, N20,000 and one phone valued at N15,000″, Opalola said.

"On their way to Ata-Oja Police Division, the suspect tricked her victim to make a photocopy of a document but ran away.

"Upon arrest, N246,650, an Opay PoS machine worth N30,000, one phone, one Ekiti State University identity card and one voter’s card were recovered.

"Also, two PoS business record books and one itel phone without battery, suspected to belong to another victim, were found.

"Investigation showed the suspect already transferred N100,000 from the recovered PoS machine to a bank account. She will be charged to court soon."
