As the Anambra CP had reportedly been duped of N150,000, the Ondo State CP was also duped of N4,000.

The court has reportedly found Isah guilty of the alleged offence, handing down a two year sentence in jqil without the option of fine.

Mr Isah is said to have run his operations in Anambra, Ondo and Lagos states between June and December, 2015, before his arrest by the Lagos Police.

The convict who has been revealed to hail from Katsina State, had reportedly gone to the Lagos State Police Command’s X-Squad Department in Ikeja, placing a complaint that some policemen attached to the Rapid Response Squad had collected the sum of N188,200 from him.

ACP Edward Ajogun, a police officer who had served in the Ondo Police Command before his transfer to Lagos State in September 2015, is reported to have met him placing the complaint at the time.

Ajogun had reportdly witnessed another scene, where Mr Isah had tried to frame some policemen in Ondo State, his sole aim being compensation.

The convict was immediately arrested, after it was discovered that he had implicated policemen in Ondo and Anambra states by taking their patrol vehicle plate numbers to the state police headquarters with claims of extortion.

The reports reveal that the Anambra Commissioner of Police had reportedly paid him the sum of N150,000 as compensation for the money lost from the claimed extortion which he said amounted to N270,000.

Isah, whose alias is known as, Musa Mulamba, went on to accuse a team of six policemen on patrol in Akure, Ondo State, of extorting N140, 000 from him.

The state CP had reportedly given Isah the sum of N4, 000 as compensation for reporting the issue to the command.

Punch correspondents reveal that the allegations had led to the dismissal of the six police officers.
