He was wearing military apparel which clearly indicated that he was a captain in the army.

The Accra Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), ASP Efia Tenge, told the newspaper that the incident happened on Thursday, October 26, 2017, around 4:30 pm.

He is said to have approached a colonel, who was not in uniform and asked him for directions to see the investigator and the friend.

When the suspect was asked to identify himself, he said he was a captain. When he was asked about his unit, he could not answer.

The colonel alerted the police who immediately arrested him, the report said.

A search conducted by the police revealed a military uniform, scarf, pennant and jackknife in his bag.
