IG has ordered the probe of E-money’s police security outfit as he also ordered their withdrawal.
The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the probe of the Chairman, Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo aka E-Money, over his alleged flamboyant lifestyle and alleged flagrant abuse of police escorts.
The billionaire E-money was said to have drawn the watchful eyes of the zealous police boss for allegedly using policemen like domestic servants.
An order was also immediately issued to the Lagos State Police Command to withdraw the six policemen attached to E-Money.
A top police officer in the command 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a signal from the Force headquarters on Monday that the police detail of music executive, E-Money, be immediately withdrawn and an investigation into the man be launched.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 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 So, we have withdrawn his policemen and we are inviting him for questioning.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.”
E-Money, who claims to be a clearing and forwarding agent, is known for his flamboyant lifestyle which he openly flaunts on Instagram.
The billionaire boasts of two Rolls Royce, two Mercedes Benz G Wagons and other Sports Utility Vehicles worth billions.
E-money is a top shot in the society and is with top Nigerians including governors, senators, monarchs, ministers, and other top government officials.
When contacted on the telephone, by PUNCH an associate of E-Money, Chidozie Dike, said he was not aware of the development and he believed it was not true.
“I am not aware and I don’t think this is true,” Dike said
