A policeman identified as Nelson Onyenibe with force number 456246 has allegedly absconded after extorting N1.8 million from a teenager he accused of internet fraud.

The policeman attached to Special Protective Unit (SPU) Base 5, Benin-City, Edo State, reportedly abandoned his AK-47 rifle with serial number B11343170 and 30 rounds of ammunition before vanishing into thin air.

Onyenibe was said to be a member of a police team that accosted the teenager identified as Precious Idisi on Tuesday, August 11.

The team said to be operating in a Toyota Camry car along DSC Express Road, Ughelli South local government area of Delta State, when they waylaid the teenager and his friend, handcuffed and accused him of being an internet fraudster.

Onyenibe was said to be on special guard duty at a hotel in the vicinity at the time of the incident.

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, which he later said was part of N2 million sent to him by his elder sister living in Germany.

Idisi, who reported the matter at the Ebremede Police Division two days after the incident, reportedly said that the money was meant for the burial ceremony of his 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,”
Vanguard quoted an unnamed source at the station as saying.

The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, Onome Onowakpoyeya, has yet to confirm the incident.
