Four SARS Officers Arrested For Kidnapping & Extorting N7Million From Bishop

The Assistant Inspector General in charge of zone 2 command, AIG Adamu Ibrahim has upheld the recommendation of police disciplinary body that recommended dismissal of four policemen attached to Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS), Ikeja, Lagos.

The four policemen who were dismissed and subsequently charged to court on offences of Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, Unlawful Detention, Intimidation and threatening violence.

This is the report of the investigation carried out against them when one Chukwudi Godwin Odionye popularly referred to as ‘Bishop’ submitted a petition against the four on 2nd of May, 2018.

The petitioner in his petition stated that on the 4th of June 2017, he was in his house around Alagbado Lagos when the four armed men stormed his house to effect his arrest on the allegation of performing ‘FAKE’ miracles.

He stated that after his arrest, he was taken to one hotel at Agege where he was detained and threatened to be killed if he fails to cooperate. He explained further that on the following day 5th June 2017, he was taken to bank where he was made to transfer seven million Naira to one of the SARS operative’s account.

On the receipt of the petition, the AIG ordered Investigation into the case. It was revealed that no proper police procedure for investigation was followed in Chukwudi’s arrest and that the four SARS operatives actually abducted the man from his house and unlawfully detained him in the hotel under the guard of the suspects for personal gain.

The policemen: Sgt Adeoye Adekunle, Sgt Adenira Adebowale, Sgt Agbi Lucky, Sgt Odighe Hehosa, who were subsequently found guilty during the orderly room trial for professional misconduct, corrupt practices, and discreditable conduct were dismissed and consequently charged to court on criminal charges of Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, Unlawful Detention, Stealing, Intimidation and threatening violence.

The Police Public Relations Officer of zone 2 command, CSP Dolapo Badmos while parading the suspects reiterated the AIG’S directive that the force will not tolerate any act of misconduct that undermines the value of International best practices of policing.

The police assured that any police officer or men found guilty will not be spared.
