The policemen reportedly went through Idisi’s phone, including his bank statement. They were said to have transferred N1.8 million from the teenager’s account.

Idisi, who reported the matter at the Ebremede Police Division two days after the incident, said that the money was part of N2 million sent to him by his elder brother living in Germany for the burial ceremony of his late father.

A security source from the Ebremede police division confirmed the incident to Vanguard on Sunday saying:

“According to the victim, the amount was part of N2million sent to him by his elder brother residing in Germany to be used for the funeral rites of their late father.

“They were subsequently taken to a Point Of Sale, POS operator identified as Ofuya Faith at PTI junction where Precious was compelled to forcefully make a withdrawal of N1.8million.

“Upon reporting the matter at the police station, the DPO directed the Divisional Crime Officer I, DSP Yerimah Ikerodah in the company of another policeman to go and arrest the suspect.

“Unfortunately, on arrival at the hotel where the suspect was stationed, DSP Yerimah began negotiating for a share of the money with the suspect, an incident that led to the sergeant escaping after jumping the fence of the hotel leaving his rifle and ammunition behind.

“However, DSP Yerimah has been issued with a query for disobedience to lawful order, discreditable conduct and sabotage while the salary account of the fleeing sergeant has been frozen with the POS operator equally arrested and detained pending further investigation.”
