Officers Extorting Money From Travelers In Viral Video Have Been Arrested

Officers caught in viral video in Kogi state extorting money from travelers have reportedly been arrested after the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, ordered an investigation after the video went viral.

In the viral video, a police officer was seen assaulting a passenger and also allegedly extorted N25,000 from him via his ATM card.

This mandate by the IGP was announced on Monday, October 18, by the Force Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba, who said the police chief specifically directed the Kogi State Police Command to carry out a thorough probe into the incident.

He equally called for calm; assuring that justice would be done for the victims of the police assault and extortion.

In furtherance of the IGP’s directives, the Kogi State Police Command said it has identified and arrested the erring police officers.

Police Public Relations Officer, DSP William Ovye Aya, stated this in a statement; noting that the affected policemen were on patrol duty along Adogo-Okene road.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Idrisu Dauda Dabban, condemned the action of the officers.
He identified the police as ASP Isah Barnabas; Inspector Ifediegwu Godwin; Sgt Emmanuel Ochima; and CPL Umameh Mathias; also adding that they physically assaulted one of the travellers.

While noting that the Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) has been issued an official query; the police commissioner said the three other junior officers are currently undergoing orderly room trial (police internal disciplinary actions).

According to the police commissioner, the aforementioned officers have been detained; at the State Criminal Investigations Department (SCID).

He assured that any of the officers found wanting in the investigations would be dealt with accordingly.

  1. It will still continue. Na who dem catch be mumu. Police will never change. If the government change, police will change. New tactics will be adopted. Shebi na police

  2. Keep exposing them to stop all corruption

  3. The crazy thing about this is that the money wasn't meant for those officers in the first place. I remember few months back, a neighbour was kidnapped by this force and taken to the station. I remember vividly when the DPO came out and told the officers that he needs 100k to complete his Sallah money and he doesn't care how the money comes.

    Stella, e shock me.

  4. This is one good way to use social media. People must be held accountable for their deeds

  5. Like play, like play, the Abba Kyari issue has gone to rest and Nigerians as usual are silently complicit in this.
    The next time he might pop up in the news, he might be an IGP.😮😮😮😮😮😮😮😮😮😮
