The Inspector General of Police (IG) Mohammed Adamu has ordered the withdrawal of six police escorts attached to Chairman, Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo alias E-Money, over alleged misuse of the cops.
Police spokesman Bala Elkana confirmed the withdrawal of the escorts to The Nation but said he was not aware of the details.
“It is true that his escorts have been withdrawn and an investigation ongoing. I do not have much information on it,” said Elkana.
E-Money, who is the younger brother of star artist Kingsley Okonkwo alias K-Cee, is to be investigated over his flamboyant lifestyle.
It was gathered that Adamu directed the Lagos Police Command to commence investigation into the young billionaire’s sources of income following allegations that he used his police escorts like domestic servants.
The policemen, said to be drawn from B Operations, command headquarters, were alleged to have reduced themselves to carrying umbrellas, handbags and even doing other menial jobs for E-Money and his household.
Known for his philanthropic works towards the downtrodden, E-Money has never shied away from displaying his luxury cars and mansions, including the multibillion palatial he unveiled during the yuletide at his hometown in Uli, Anambra.
