Police authorities at the Force headquarters in Abuja have explained why they arrested actress Tonto Dikeh’s ex-boyfriend, Prince Kpokpogiri. He was arrested on Tuesday morning, October 19, after he reportedly bypassed Police authorities, took two police officers to an hotel where Tonto lodged and thr*atened to open fire at her if she did not hand over the keys of an SUV.
Kpokpogiri who is currently facing a pending investigation at Force CID, at a point became vi*lent and was allegedly raining ins*lts and c*rses on the Police officers while all entreaties for him to calm down failed.
Consequently, when the DIG in charge of Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Bureau, DIG Joseph Egbunike, was briefed about the conduct of Kpokpogiri, he ordered his arrest and the policemen that he came with. We were told that his arrest is to enable him to regain his sanity after which he would be questioned on the issue about ownership or otherwise on the vehicle in question.
