Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the probe of Five Star Group Chairman, Emeka Okonkwo, better known as E-Money, over his flamboyant lifestyle and flagrant abuse of police escort.
E-Money who is the brother to Kingsley Okonkwo (Kcee), was said to have drawn the attention of the police boss after he used policemen like domestic servants.
An order, it was learnt, was immediately issued to the Lagos State Police Command to withdraw 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a signal from the Force headquarters on Monday that the police detail of music executive, E-Money, be immediately withdrawn and an investigation into the man be launched.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 So, we have withdrawn his policemen and we are inviting him for questioning.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.”
When contacted on the telephone, an associate of E-Money, Chidozie Dike, said he was not aware of the development and he believed it was not true.
“I am not aware and I don’t think this is true,” Dike said.
The probe into E-Money comes 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 said that more social media celebs are also on the radar of the police and other law enforcement agencies.
