Emerging reports have claimed that about N3.6 million out of over N8 million recovered from a suspected thief has allegedly disappeared in Enugu state police custody.

Vanguard reports that the state police commissioner, Mohammed Danmalam, said he would personally investigate the matter.

“I will investigate the matter and give you feedback please,” he said through a text message.

A member of the Police Mobile Force (MOPOL) guarding a bank at Nsukka area of the state was said to have recovered the money from a newly recruited security man by the bank.

The man reportedly confessed at the station that he acted alone and that he was recruited as a security man by the bank barely a month before the incident.

Later when the bank officials were invited to come for the recovered stolen money, one of the bags containing about N3.6 million had, however, “developed wings and disappeared.”
