Four policemen arrested in Rivers for extorting N6.5m from residents 

    Published By:

    The Rivers State Police Command has arrested four officers who allegedly assaulted three men and extorted N6.5 million from them along the East-West Road in the state.

    It was gathered that the policemen reportedly arrested the boys from Omoluwabi in the Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Local Government Area of the state on July 31, 2023, and released them on August 1 after extorting the money from them, and tagged them internet fraudsters.

    The state Commissioner of Police, Emeka Nwonyi, said, “You can see some police officers. They have been in detention for more than two weeks now for an offence. They are not from this command, but we arrested them to show that we are here to purge ourselves.

    “I don’t think any other organisation has been more purgative like the police in cleaning up the bad eggs in their system and I want to be challenged on that.”

    Also, Nwonyi paraded another four police officers, including three Inspectors, for allegedly assaulting a female commuter.

    The police boss said, “Upon receipt of the complaint, the commander of the CP Monitoring Unit swung into action and identified the officers as men of an Anti-Cultism Unit on a stop-and-search led by Inspector. Agba Emmanuel, and three others namely Inspector Abgani Peter, Inspector Ozenewa Amadi and Sargeant Akuigbo Bartholomew.

    “They have all been arrested and in custody undergoing interrogation.

    “Also, I am appealing to the lady who was assaulted to come to my office and give us her side of the incident for proper investigation to be carried out.”
