Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police (IGP), has ordered the immediate probe of Emeka Okonkwo, a business mogul better known as E-Money, and withdrawal of his police escorts, over alleged abuse of his police escorts and flashy lifestyle.
Okonkwo, who is the brother to musician, Kingsley Okonkwo aka K-Cee, was said to have drawn the ire of the police boss for using policemen like domestic servants.
An order, it was learnt, was immediately issued to the Lagos State Police Command to withdraw the six policemen attached to E-Money.
The State Command in a statement said:
“We received a signal from the Force headquarters on Monday that the police detail of music executive, E-Money, be immediately withdrawn and an investigation into the man be launched,” the media outlet quoted a police source as saying.
“The IG was surprised that policemen were attached to him in the first place and were being used like domestic servants, carrying umbrellas, opening doors, and doing menial jobs for him.
“The policemen were discovered to be attached to B Operations at the command headquarters and not MOPOL which is the usual practice. So, we have withdrawn his policemen and we are inviting him for questioning. The policemen will also be interrogated.”
