‘It has been brought to my notice the falsehood trending on the social media about a tweet by one Asiwaju Michael to the effect that I extorted him of the sum of 2000 Us dollars, and another #115,000 through a protege for what offence, he didnt state, and no one cared to ask, because the allegation was against a police officer who can be dispensed with whether the allegation was true or not.

For the benefit of those who sincerely believe I could not descend so low to have done what was being circulated, owing to the fact that i have laboured hard to build an image for myself and my little effort to bolster the image of my organisation the Nigeria Police Force, Kwara Command.

One Asiwaju Michael who resides in Lagos, was reported by one Cynthia, (surname withheld) through her pastor to me stating that she had been turned to a sex slave by the suspect, due to his video recording of her nudity in one of their sexapades. The said Asiwaju Michael was in the habit of demanding sex from her with menace failure which he would resort to threatening to post her nude pictures on the social media. He has succeeded in doing that severally in Lagos, but when the lady resumed in school in Ilorin, Michael continued in his demand, hence the courage to bring her pastor into the picture and I was in formed and a trap was set for the suspect. He was however lured and arrested at Bovina Hotels Ilorin at about 0200hrs of the 7th of July 2017. He was brought to the police headquarters where after interrogation he confessed to the crime, the interrogation ended in the morning, meanwhile his confessional statement and that of the complainant is still intact, I was told by the policeman I assigned to interrogate him when I came back later in the morning of same day that he escaped while on the way to search his hotel room, abandoning his phone, meanwhile his escape formed the reason for the transfer of the police officer assigned to interrogate him among other punishments. Since that time until now we have been looking for him and in order to protect the identity of the complainant who is a student we decided to clandestinely look for him for re-arrest which until now is yet successful, never a time did he mention that money was collected from him.

Now that the matter is already in the public space, he is advised to come out of hiding and should not use the anonymity of social media to spew umbrage on the police, he should come out to defend and substantiate his allegations. The lady in question is alive, the pastor is alive and both are ready to give evidence, meanwhile the phone he used in taking the nude pictures which he has passworded and believe no one can bypass is still in our custody, all this will help in the investigation.

Finally, I am stating here and now that I didn’t collect any money from him, nether did I send anybody to do that on my behalf, concerning the bank transaction he also posted, investigation will reveal the owner and any other hidden facts. As much as people deride members of the police, I dare say there are very noble men and women of integrity who are ready to lay their lives for the safety of lives and property of the citizens in the force , yes some bad eggs abound, the authority is working very hard to show them the way out, I dare say, I am not one of them, as for people whose stock in trade is to bad mouth any thing police, and some social media tigers I pray God forgive your ignorance.
We are still waiting for Asiwaju Michael to come out of hiding to substantiate his claims, please.,
