Two men were on Thursday docked in a Gwagwalada Chief Magistrates' Court for allegedly impersonating military officers.

NAN reports that the police charged Methuselah Enoch, 25, and Caleb Auta, 23, with five counts of criminal conspiracy, breach of trust, cheating, fraudulently obtaining decree for sum not due, and false personation.

The prosecution counsel, Abdullahi Tanko, told the court that the complainant, Tanko Yabo of Pasali Kuje, Abuja, reported the matter at the police station on October 4.
