Edgal Imohimi, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, has debunked a report that one Christopher Marcel Innabogu, an Inspector, owns a N250 million house in GRA Ikeja, Lagos.
Imohimi said this while addressing journalists at the State Command Headquarters on Thursday. He said the police had investigated Innabogu, who was also accused of owning N2 billion, and found the allegations to be false.
Newsbreak.ng recalls that Insp. Innabogu, was in a viral video by a masked lady who said he was living above his means.
The Inspector was also reported to drive a car with MCON as the registration number and spends lavishly in clubs in the metropolis.
"The allegation is a very serious one and as a responsible institution, the command will leave no stone unturned to ensure the matter is investigated.
"Ibrahim Idris, the Inspector General of Police, directed that I verify the authenticity of the lady's allegation and let the world know my findings.
"Investigation revealed that indeed there is a person known as Christopher Marcel Innabogu, an Inspector of Police enlisted in 2004 in Enugu State but presently serving at Ogudu division.
"Innabogu never served in Imo and never enlisted as a mobile police, the picture where the police officer was putting on a Mobile Police uniform was taken in 2008 when he attended the exercise to be enlisted which was not successful.
"The Inspector owned no car, house or any landed property. He is presently a tenant in a room and parlor apartment at 125, Old-Otta Rd, Agege, Lagos.
"The officer is single owing to his financial status and has N15,000 and N5,000 in his FCMB and Access Bank accounts respectively." he said.
The CP added that the lady is out to cause mischief, portraying police officers as stupendously rich and cause disaffection between the police and the public. He urged members of the public to ignore the report. He said the police was on the trail of the woman.
Meanwhile the CP also debunked the report that a lady had jumped into the Lagoon to commit suicide. Imohimi said the report cannot be confirmed until a body is recovered by the Marine Police.
