The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the probe of the Chairman, Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo aka E-Money, over his flamboyant lifestyle and alleged abuse of police escorts.
Okonkwo, a brother to musician, Kingsley Okonkwo aka K-Cee, was said to have drawn the attention of the police boss for using policemen like domestic servants.
According to reliable sources, the order to withdraw the six policemen attached to E-Money was learnt to have been issued to the Lagos State Police Command.
“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a signal from the Force headquarters on Monday that the police detail of music executive, E-Money, be immediately withdrawn and an investigation into the man be launched.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 So, we have withdrawn his policemen and we are inviting him for questioning.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.” A police source said.
E-Money, a clearing and forwarding agent, is known for his flamboyant lifestyle.
An associate of E-Money, Chidozie Dike however said he was not aware of the development and he believed it was not true.
CANDIIDONLINE reports that the probe into E-Money is coming less than a year after that of an Instagram celebrity, Ismaila Mustapha aka Mompha, who was also known to show off his ostentatious lifestyle on social media.
Sources informed that more social media celebs are also on the radar of the police and other law enforcement agencies.
The Lagos State Police Command’s spokesman, DSP Bala Elkana, also confirmed the development to be true.
