The Rivers State Police Command has taken swift action, identifying and arresting three police officers allegedly involved in the kidnapping and extortion of $3,000 from an unidentified man in Port Harcourt. The victim was reportedly seized by the policemen in Port Harcourt and transported outside the state, where he was compelled to transfer the mentioned sum before being released.

The arrest came following a revelation by an X user, Harrison Gwamnishu, who detailed the incident on his handle, @HarrisonBbi18. According to Gwamnishu, the police officers, attached to the Rivers State Police Command, traveled from Port Harcourt to Aba, Abia State, apprehended the man, proceeded to Bayelsa State, and finally reached Ughelli, Delta State. After extorting $3,000, they returned the man to Port Harcourt and abandoned him.

While the specific offense committed by the man remains unclear, Grace Iringe-Koko, the spokesperson for the state police command, confirmed the ongoing investigation into the matter. In a concise statement titled, “Re: $3,000 USDT Transferred To Police Officers Wallet,” Iringe-Koko assured that three officers were in custody, and the investigation was progressing. She pledged to disclose the outcome of the investigation to the public once concluded.
