Yesterday, two young men were apprehended by men of the Edo State Police Command and were accused of cyber crime and were taken into custody. While the police officers were unable to nail that accusation on them, they fabricated another offence of cultism just to instill great fear in them.
The young boys were forced to cough out the sum of N100, 000 which was initially pegged at N200, 000 for both of them following sordid tales of how innocent citizens have been framed up by some law enforcement agents for the purpose of extortion,
According to Osazee Edigin, the police officers allegedly took the boys to an ATM to withdraw the said amount.
Unfortunately for the policemen, news got to Edo Civil Society Organisations and the Coordinator General, Comrade Omobude Agho and other comrades took it upon themselves in investigating the matter and doing justice to same. Just to cut a long story short, the Officer in Charge of the Unit at the State Police Command quickly responded and retrieved the money from the police officers that carried out the shameful act.
Report has it that this is not the first time members of EDOCSO have recovered paid bail fees.
