Nwaokolo Ifeanyi Clement, a Nigerian businessman, has accused one Sunday Iyadi, a police officer attached to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Intelligence Response Team (IRT) of duping him of the sum of N5.1 million through a business transaction.

Speaking to SaharaReporters, Clement said he was introduced to Iyadi by one of his kinsmen who told him the officer had some drugs for sale.

The business man said after he paid the officer millions of naira, it was discovered that the products were fake. 

He said, “Early in March 2021, one Mr Silas Nwabueb, who's a Delta brother from Ubulu Uku approached me and said his friend, Sunday Iyadi had some drugs for sale and asked if I could find a buyer. I told him I had a pharmacist friend and that I would inform him and get back to them after our meeting. 

“Mr Sunday Iyadi told me his boss has a brother with the customs and they always give his boss samples of commodities taken for inspection. He told me because I asked how he got the drugs they wanted to sell. After the explanation and also an affirmation from Mr Silas Nwabueb, who I consider as a brother, I did not doubt their sincerity. I was given a sachet of the medicine which I showed to my friend, Mr Chris Okafor, owner of Skylife Standard Pharmacy Ltd. He asked me to follow up with them if truly that had original stock.

“After some days, precisely on March 6, 2021, I was called and taken to IRT Annex office at Ikeja GRA, close to Grange School and it was at that point I knew Sunday Iyadi was a police officer and an inspector as his colleagues were joking with him. He took me straight inside the main building to their office — the first turning to the right. He took me to a lavishly furnished office with a secretary section at the front of the office. I was introduced to a man said to be their boss. They brought out 2 cartons and I made a video call showing Mr Chris Okafor my findings and he told me he did not have the money to pay immediately as it was a weekend— Saturday, March 6, 2021. I asked if they would allow me take it and pay later but they refused.

“At that point, I told him I had some money with me, if I could make payment on his behalf and be refunded later and he agreed. I was given an account number belonging to KHADFIX NIG LTD with Zenith Bank account No: 1017306424 where I transferred the sum of N4,000,000 from my company account with FCMB account No: 7227900017 of (Fidelity Global Communications) and because I had exceeded my bulk transfer limit, Inspector Sunday Iyadi and one other called Tallest instructed me to transfer N200,000 to Iyadi Sunday's account with FCMB 2793290010 since it's the same bank with mine and that the balance of N900, 000 should be transferred to Mr Silas Nwabueb who was their referee. I transferred N300,000 on the same day and N600,000 early on Sunday, March 7, 2021 and Sunday Iyadi and Tallest assisted me in taking the drugs to Ogba. On getting to Mr Chris Okafor's office, he was not on seat but had instructed that the drugs should kept it in his store.

"Upon his inspection when he returned on Monday because he had travelled to his hometown in the East, I was told the drugs were fake and he doesn't sell fake drugs. I immediately called Silas and Sunday Iyadi to inform them and they claimed they were not aware it was fake and at that juncture, I asked Sunday Iyadi to take back the drugs which he eventually did and promised to bring original ones but he never did and all appeals to him to return the money failed. This prompted me to write a petition against him and Silas to Zone 2 headquarters in September and till date no action has been taken against him.

“The police at Zone 2 sent 3 signals to Inspector Sunday Iyadi's office and even copied IRT Commander DCP Disu in Abuja who hasn't reprimanded him to go and answer for his crime. He has failed to honour invitation to the AIG office at Zone 2 Headquarters, Lagos. Mr Silas Nwabueb also has not been apprehended as all efforts made to arrest him failed. One will now wonder how a police officer will fail to honour his superiors over a crime perpetrated in his office after over 6 months and 2 months after he was officially invited by the authorities. And I am being harrassed daily by him and Silas.

“People I owe as a result of this money fraudulently collected by Inspector Sunday Iyadi and his group are also harassing me to pay their money and Inspector Sunday Iyadi has been threatening me because I’m asking that he should refund the money they fraudulently collected from me in their office.”
