A publisher, Uche Sunday Aja has disclosed of how police men in Aba, the commercial plexus of Abia State planted drugs in his car in a bid to frame up his second son and extort money from him.

Aja, who publishes Newsbearer Magazine said his wife had on February 14 directed their son to drive one of his vehicles to park it at a convenient place since their residence could only accommodate one vehicle at a time.

According to him, his son left with his cousin who resides with them to do as he was commanded.

He further disclosed that on reaching MCC Road, Aba around Deeper Life Church, a five-member police team on a ‘stop and search’ operation stopped them.

According to Aja, after thoroughly searching his son and cousin including the vehicle without seeing any incriminating object, the cops turned around to allege that his second son is a yahoo boy.

The former Transition Committee Chairman of Ukwa West Local Government Area of Abia State said one Officer Victor who led the team forced his son at gun point to drive to Eziama Police Headquarters while his cousin was forced into a Sienna bus which the cops were operating in.

The former Correspondent of The Source Magazine revealed that inside the Sienna bus were three boys the cops had earlier arrested and they were waiting for the person whom they had called to bring money to bail them.

Luck ran out of the cops when the man who arrived to bail them turned out to be a Divisional Police Officer (DPO).

Aja further disclosed that the cops wanted to flee the scene on seeing the DPO but were blocked by the DPO, who queried why they should mount a checkpoint outside their jurisdiction.

The DPO, he said, also put a call to the DPO of Eziama Police Headquarters who vehemently denied deploying them to the area.

Aja said the DPO ordered the release of the boys including his cousin who remembered that his (Aja’s) son had been taken to the Eziama Police Headquarters.

He added that at the police headquarters, the cops demanded that his son transferred N50,000 before he could be let off their hook.

The publisher further revealed that his cousin who reminded the cops that the money they were demanding was not part of the directive of the DPO received the beating of his life.

At this point, Aja said the cops had seized his son’s telephone handset and car key and ordered him to go home and return the following day.

Aja added that on returning to the station the following day the DCO who had taken up the case claimed that drugs were found in his car, a claim that got him infuriated to enquire how the police could arrest a person with drugs and allowed him home.

The publisher also narrated the case of another person the police in Aba also arrested and planted Biafran currency note in his bag of beans and threatened him with a court action if he did not pay them N1million to close the case.
