By Ikeugonna Eleke

The Police in Anambra State said that a corps member, Mr Nnamdi Emeh, who was recently declared wanted, stole a whooping N47million from a Victim’s  account.

Emeh, a serving corps member, was working as an IT consultant to the 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 illegal possession of arms.

Investigation also revealed that using his IT skills and knowledge of police operations, Emeh had used an anonymous blogger to reveal alleged atrocious activities of some police officers in the state.

In a press release, Tuesday, the Anambra State Police Command’s spokesperson, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, disclosed that the whistleblower was in their custody after he was arrested in Benin Republic last month, while trying to escape from the law.

Ikenga said: ‘Also, recall the Command on 20th February, 2023, declared one Emeh Nnamdi Daniel, 26 years old, wanted on allegations of unlawful possession of firearms, money laundering, and defamation of character, fraud and impersonation. He is a youth corps member serving in the Police Command.

‘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 N47 million to 14 different accounts owned by him.’

The command said the matter was already before the Federal High Court.
