UPDATE: Police arrest officers who abducted fashion designer in Festac

by Paul Agada

Information reaching us at InsideMainland has it that the Lagos State Police Command has apprehended some of its operatives who abducted a fashion designer, Joseph Ejiro, and recovered the N185, 000 extorted from him.

Recall that we reported how the alleged victim, Joseph Ejiro recounted his ordeal with the policemen, and called for their arrest.

In reaction to his claims, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, had asked the fashion designer to come to the command headquarters in Ikeja with details of the incident and promised that the matter would be investigated.

It was gathered that the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, intervened in the matter, and ordered that the officers must be fished out.

The Police PRO told PUNCH METRO that suspected officers (five in number) have been arrested and are presently in custody. He added that the money extorted from the fashion designer had also been recovered and would be returned to him.
