The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the immediate withdrawal of the police escorts attached to the Chairman of Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo aka E-Money.
Confirming this to Nigeriana, the spokesperson of the Lagos state command says an order came from the Inspector General of Police’s office for the immediate withdrawal of the police escorts attached to E-Money.
Yes I can confirm that police men have been withdrawn from him.” Bala told Nigeriana
On what could have led to such a decision, the police spokesperson said he would not be able to comment but can authoritatively confirm that the police escorts have been withdrawn.
There are reports that E-Money might have gotten the police authority angry over his alleged abuse of the privilege of having police escorts. A police source said the authorities accused him of using his police escorts like they were his domestic servants with some of them posing in photos as they opened the doors of his cars for him, hold his umbrella and many unofficial duties.
The Lagos state police command has also been given a matching order to investigate his sources of income
E-Money is yet to comment on this development.
