The Ogun State Commissioner of Police has ordered the arrest and detention of two Inspectors and three sergeants for allegedly extorting N2million from two suspects via Point of Sale (POS) Machine.

According to a Police Situation Report (SITREP) sighted by our reporter, the incident happened on February 25, 2022, at 4:PM.

It was also gathered that four among the policemen identified as Inspector Enext, Inspector  Akpan, sergeant Musax and sergeant Ade,  all attached to the Force Criminal Investigations Department (FCID), Lagos State Annex, disappeared following the discovery of the crime, leaving only sergeant Emmanuel Iseguan at the mercy of their superiors. Iseguan  had since been arrested and detained.

The crime committed by the two suspects, leading to them parting with N2million is yet unknown.

Iseguan, with Force Number 448576, with the fleeing four other policemen, went to a POS shop at Ogere Tanbola Road to make a transaction of the sum of N2million.

The POS operator, identified as Ibrahim Isah, suspecting that the transaction was illegal, alerted detectives attached to Sagamu Police Station.

The SITREP further states: “Sergeant  Iseguan was arrested and in the course of interrogation, claimed that on that same day, at 9:30am, he and four other policemen; Inspector Enext, Inspector  Akpan, sergeant Musax and sergeant Ade, all attached to FCID Annex, Lagos, went to Alagbado area of Lagos State to arrest two male suspects. The said suspects were taken to Sagamu police Station and forced to transfer the sum of N2million.”

The police chief had since ordered the arrest and detention of  Iseguan, while a man-hunt for his fleeing partners had been launched.
