E-Money in trouble as IGP withdraws his police escort


A probe has been ordered into the flamboyant lifestyle of the Chairman, Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo aka E-Money.

The probe which also covers his use of police officers like domestic staff was ordered by the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu

An order has been issued to the Lagos State Police Command which will see the withdraw of the six policemen attached to E-Money.

A top police officer 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a signal from the Force headquarters on Monday that the police detail of music executive, E-Money, be immediately withdrawn and an investigation into the man be launched.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 So, we have withdrawn his policemen and we are inviting him for questioning.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 can be seen on Instagram flaunting a luxurious lifestyle. He also has pictures showing him shaking hands with governors, senators and prominent Nigerians.

Chidozie Dike, an associate of E-Money who was contacted concerning the police order stated that he’s not aware of such.

“I am not aware and I don’t think this is true,” Dike said.
