Emerging reports have claimed that about N3.6 million out of over N8 million recovered from a suspected thief has allegedly disappeared in Enugu state police custody.
Vanguard reports that the state police commissioner, Mohammed Danmalam, said he would personally investigate the matter. “I will investigate the matter and give you feedback please,” he said through a text message.
A member of the Police Mobile Force (MOPOL) guarding a bank at Nsukka area of the state was said to have recovered the money from a newly recruited security man by the bank.
The man reportedly confessed at the station that he acted alone and that he was recruited as a security man by the bank barely a month before the incident.
Later when the bank officials were invited to come for the recovered stolen money, one of the bags containing about N3.6 million had, however, “developed wings and disappeared.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that operatives of the Enugu state police command arrested not less than 40 indigenes of Ogbozinne community in Nkanu-west local government area, in connection with the beating to death of their traditional ruler, HRH, late Igwe Stephen Nwatu, on Monday, June 11.
Following the incident, many residents of the community also fled into bushes and forests of neighboring communities; out of fear that they would be targeted by persons angered by the death of the monarch, or picked up by the Police.
Members of the community beat the monarch to coma after he allegedly knocked down an old man who was among his antagonists, with his vehicle and Police escorts.
The royal father was later rushed to Park Lane Hospital, Enugu, where he died.
