“Police officers attached to Rivers State Police Command left Port Harcourt to ABA, ABIA State, arrested a man, took him to Rivers State, Bayelsa State and entered Ughelli, Delta State. After paying 3,000 USD, they moved him back to Port Harcourt and dumped him.”

The River State Police Command has arrested and detained some of its officers for allegedly extorting $3,000 from a Port Harcourt resident.
Earlier on Friday evening, a user on X (formerly known as Twitter) with the handle @harrisonbbi18 made a post saying:

“Police officers attached to Rivers State Police Command left Port Harcourt to ABA, ABIA State, arrested a man, took him to Rivers State, Bayelsa State and entered Ughelli, Delta State. After paying 3,000 USD, they moved him back to Port Harcourt and dumped him.”

When contacted on Saturday, the Command Public Relations Officer, Grace Iringe-Koko, promised to revert with more information, Channels TV reports.
Later, she confirmed the incident, saying the outcome would be public once an investigation was concluded.

“RE: $3000 USDT Transferred To Police Officers WALLET. The police personnel have been identified and arrested while the investigation is in progress. The outcome will be made public as soon as it is concluded,” SP Grace Iringe-Koko said.
But when contacted for further information, she declined to confirm how many policemen were arrested or if the victim had been contacted.
