Six SARS officers arrested in Delta for allegedly extorting N40,000 from twins

Six SARS officers arrested in Delta for allegedly extorting N40,000 from twins

Officials of the Behind Bars Rights Initiative (BBI) on Wednesday
facilitated the arrest of six SARS officers, led by one Inspector Monday
Asemota, for allegedly extorting N40,000 from twin brothers identified
as Mark and Martins, who were travelling to Warri on Tuesday from Abraka
town in Delta State.

It was gathered that the officers swooped on the vehicle conveying
the two brothers, in a stop-and-search operation, and demanded for the
phones of the victims.

Our informed sources said that the officers while going through their
phones, allegedly found some pictures linking them to homosexuals,
including the discovery of N70,000 in their bags, which purportedly made
the officers order them to stay behind while other passengers in the
vehicle, a commercial vehicle playing Warri, Abraka and neighbouring
communities, were asked to go.

The victims were alleged to have been taken to a petrol station where
the officer allegedly counted N40,000 out of the N70,000 and returned
N30,000 to them.

It was further gathered that the victims immediately contacted the
Behind Bars Rights Initiative (BBI), which swung into action, and the
officers were tracked down in Ekpan Police Station, with the N40,000
refunded to the victims.

The chairman of BBI, Mandy Osuji, who confirmed the incident said: “One of them, Martins Egiebor called us, and we swung into
action, followed their complaints up, and ensured that the matter was
taken before the IGP X Squad Delta State Police Command, and they
immediately sent their man after them, and they were arrested at Ekpan
Police Station where they were forced to return N40,000 while they are
undergoing trials”.

Confirming the arrest of the six SARS operatives, the state Police
Commissioner, Mustafa, Muhammed told newsmen that, “the six officers
are undergoing trials, and until investigations are completed, I cannot
speak further on the issue”.
