The attention of the Rivers State Police Command has been drawn to an alleged extortion of N620,000 by some men said to be police officers wearing mufti along the Sanni Abacha Road, GRA, in Rivers State.
The Commissioner of Police, Rivers State Command, takes misconduct seriously and is concerned about the reported incident.
An investigation is underway on the allegations, and the command is assuring the concerned citizen that action will be taken against the police personnel if found guilty.
The Rivers State Commissioner of Police, CP Nwonyi Emeka, has vowed that he would not protect any officer found culpable of any criminal offence in the state, warning that any policeman involved in crime would be prosecuted accordingly.
CP Nwonyi Emeka promised that the matter would not be swept under the carpet.
The command will be glad if the affected person can come to the command headquarters, Mosco Road, Port Harcourt, to report in order to fish out the culprits.
The CP will expedite action on this case.
