The state Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, said Balogun met her waterloo in October 2014 in Abeokuta.

He said: “Balogun, sometime in October, came to Abeokuta, dressed in police uniform, and defrauded a car dealer in Oke-Ilewo area of a metallic ash Honda Accord Crosstour, worth over N4 million. Officers later traced Balogun to her base in Lagos, where her husband, Rasheed was arrested and used as a bait to arrest his wife.

The suspect confessed that she had sold the car for N2 million to someone in Port Harcourt.”On her part, Balogun said she was dismissed as a Corporal in 2010 after she was adjudged to have fabricated certificates at Police Academy, Kano where she had gone for a course to get promoted to the rank of  Superintendent of Police.
