In a post via their verified X handle on Tuesday, the police in Rivers State said they had identified and arrested the officers involved in the alleged extortion and kidnap of the young man.

The young man, simply identified as ‘Kay Persona,’ was heard in the clip narrating how some police officers allegedly kidnapped, locked him up in a police cell and forced him to pay a sum of money before being released.

The police did not mention the number of the officers arrested in connection with the matter but a photograph posted on X indicated they were five of them.

Narrating his experience in the hands of the officers, Mr Persona man said the officers, who were armed and dressed in ash and blue police camouflage, had intercepted a bolt vehicle he was riding in on a Saturday in September.
