Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, has placed a N1 million bounty on the head of the hooded lady who alleged in a viral video that police inspector, Christopher Marcel Nabugwu, was living beyond his means.
The masked lady in the clip alleged that the police inspector worth N2bn claiming he owns a property worth over N250 million at No. 27 Remi Fani-Kayode Street GRA, Ikeja, uses exotic cars with customised vehicle license registered as “MCON”.
Investigation into the matter, negated the masked lady’s claims, a statement released by the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), CSP Chike Oti said.
The PPRO explained that Nabugwu neither had a car nor a house and had a miserable amount in his bank account.
Oti said the police was banking on the goodwill of Lagosians to track Nabugwa’s accuser adding a reward of N1m awaited any person who provides information that will lead to the masked woman’s arrest.
The lady, who presented herself as a whistle-blower, explained in the video that she masked her face because she didn’t want to endanger her life. Speaking in the video, she said: “I don’t know what will happen to me if my face is exposed. This man, Inspector Marcel Christopher Nnabugwu, is known as MCON. He uses MCON as car number plate.
“There is nobody who goes to nightclub on Lagos Island who doesn’t know him. Immediately he enters, the place will ‘shut down.’ Just last month, this guy celebrated his 30th birthday at a club in Ikoyi and almost all the well-known rich men and celebrities were there.
“His house in GRA Ikeja is worth over N250 million. “But let me shock you, I travelled to Owerri last week to see my uncle at Mopol 18 Barracks and that was where I saw this guy in the uniform of police sergeant, carrying AK47.
“If this guy is truly a police sergeant, since when have police sergeants in Nigeria started having such money? But if this guy is not a police sergeant, how come he is wearing a police uniform with the rank of a sergeant and armed with AK47?”
