He exhibited suspicious movements and demeanour around the security detail at the airport and when he was queried, it was realised he was impersonating and was subsequently arrested and handed over to the Manhyia Police.

Briefing the media in Kumasi on Tuesday, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, Commissioner of Police, Mr Ken Yeboah, said Ibrahim confessed when the Vice President’s security detail interviewed him.

He said the suspect confessed to the police that the uniform belonged to his elder brother who was a military officer with the 5th Battalion of Infantry at Burma Camp but currently on peace keeping operations in Lebanon.
