Mohamed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police, has ordered the probe of the Chairman, Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo, popularly called E-Money, over his ostentatious lifestyle and flagrant abuse of police escorts.
According to reports, E-Money drew the ire of the police boss for using policemen like domestic servants and the police boss issued an order to the Lagos State Police Command to withdraw the six policemen attached to him.
A top police officer who spoke on the condition of anonymity 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a signal from the Force headquarters on Monday that the police detail of music executive, E-Money, be immediately withdrawn and an investigation into the man be launched”.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 police officer added: “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 So, we have withdrawn his policemen and we are inviting him for questioning.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.”
However, as at press time both the Lagos State police spokesman, Bala Elkana, and the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, had yet to respond to messages to ascertain the true position of things.
