According to him, after making them drive round some parts of the city, the police officers eventually forced them to go to an ATM machine where they made him to withdraw N120, 000 cash which is his bank’s allowed maximum withdrawal for the day.
He added that he was compelled to transfer another N30, 000 to an account of belonging to one Udoh Favour, provided by the E-Crack Officers.
Victor, however, said luck ran out the policemen as one them forgot his phone in his car.
The student told journalists that he quickly switched the Tecno Torchlight phone, to stop the police officers from calling it, using it to trace him and to use it as an evidence against them.
He appealed to the new CP Eboka Friday to help him recover his money and bring the police officers to book.
