In the midday of Tuesday, May 12, 2020, reports came in that Nigerian Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has ordered withdrawal of escorts and probe of the Chairman, Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo better known as E-Money.
E-Money, who is known to be younger brother of music star, Kingsley Okonkwo also known as KCee was said to be under probe over his flamboyant lifestyle and blatant abuse of police escorts.
According to The PUNCH, an order was issued by Police IG to the Lagos State Police Command to withdraw the six policemen attached to E-Money.
A top police officer stated, “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a signal from the Force headquarters on Monday that the police detail of music executive, E-Money, be immediately withdrawn and an investigation into the man be launched.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 So, we have withdrawn his policemen and we are inviting him for questioning.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.”
During an interview with The PUNCH same day, May 12, Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, confirmed that E-Money’s escorts were withdrawn pending his probe and investigation.
He said, “I can confirm that E-Money’s policemen have been withdrawn. We were ordered to do so and the directive has been complied with. I do not know the reason for the order at this time.”
