There is a fresh twist in the case of Mr Nnamdi Emeh, a serving corps member who was arrested for alleged impersonation among other crimes against the Anambra Police Command.
Emeh, a serving corps member was working as an IT consultant to Anambra State Police Command, and was attached to the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Awkuzu.
Emeh was declared wanted for impersonation, where he claimed to be a police officer with the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police. He was also accused of money laundering and and illegal possession of arms.
Emeh was accused of using his IT skills and knowledge of police operations, through an anonymous blogger to reveal alleged atrocious activities of some police officers in the state.
A statement made available by the Anambra State Police Command’s spokesperson, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga yesterday, said that the corps member stole a N47million from a suspect’s account.
According to Ikenga, the whistleblower is now in Police custody, after he was arrested in Benin Republic last month, while trying to escape from the law.
The Police in Anambra State have said that a corps member, Mr Nnamdi Emeh, who was recently declared wanted, stole a N47million from a suspect’s account.
Ikenga said: “Also, recall the command on 20th February, 2023 declared one Emeh Nnamdi Daniel, 26years old (sic) wanted a youth corp member serving in the police command, on allegations of unlawful possession of firearms, money laundering, and defamation of character, fraud and impersonation.
“We also want to use this opportunity to let you know the suspect is in custody. The suspect, Nnamdi Emeh fled the country to Benin Republic before he was arrested by INTERPOL operatives.
“Nnamdi also hacked into one Mr Chibuike Martins Ekwueme’s account and fraudulently transferred a total sum of N47million to 14 different accounts owned by him.”
