According to a statement made by Naval Captain M. A. Larbi, Director of Public Relations, Rufai Abubakar was attempting to penetrate a military post within Burma Camp while acting as a Senior Military Officer.
The Police CID has subsequently received the suspect, Rufai Abubakar, for further investigation and prosecution.
The military high command thinks that given that his two wives, who lived in Ablekuma and Olebu, each mistakenly believed their husband to be an actual military commander, it’s likely that many more people may have been duped by his impersonations and fraudulent schemes.

The suspect, who was decked out in a false Lieutenant Colonel rank-adorned military camouflage suit, claimed to be stationed at the Northern Command Headquarters and was headed to the Air Force Base to make travel arrangements to Tamale.
As he disembarked at a bus stop and made his way to the Air Force Base, the suspect who had entered Burma Camp in a commercial vehicle was intensively watched.
He admitted to not being a military member when the on-duty guards saw his unusual behavior and questioned him.
He further said that he had pretended to be a senior military officer in order to con Mr. Abdallah Abdul Fatahu out of three thousand Ghana cedis (GH $3000.00) under the guise of enlisting him in the Ghanaian military.
The suspect was in possession of bogus military IDs, business cards, and other papers carrying his identity at the time of his arrest.
A toy handgun and multiple certifications, as well as bogus Ghana Armed Forces recruitment application summary reports with the names of frauded individuals, were found during a follow-up search by the Military Police at his two houses in Ablekuma Fan Milk and Olebu, respectively.
To assist in investigations and to aid GAF and the Security Services in rooting out the miscreants in our communities, such individuals are urged to get in touch with the Police CID.
