Six policemen attached to the Chairman of Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo, popularly known as E-Money, have been withdrawn by the Lagos State Police Command.
Bala Elkana, the Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed this development to newsmen in the state.
According to him, “I can confirm that E-Money’s policemen have been withdrawn. We were ordered to do so and the directive has been complied with. I do not know the reason for the order at this time.
Recently, E-Money had become the subject of a police investigation for his flamboyant lifestyle and alleged misuse of orderlies.
E-Money, who is the brother to the musician, Kingsley Okonkwo, also known as K-Cee, was said to have drawn the ire of the police boss for using 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 told our correspondent that, “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a signal from the Force headquarters on Monday that the police detail of music executive, E-Money, be immediately withdrawn and an investigation into the man be launched.”
