After searching his phone, they noticed that his account balance was N700,000 so they took him to a POS agent. They forced the young man to make four withdrawals(100k twice and 150k twice). He was forced to hand the money over to the police officers. He reported the matter to Behind Bars and an investigation was initiated after a petition was written to the Anambra state commissioner of police. The money was returned to the owner today after the intervention of the human rights organisation.
