A FedEx dispatch rider identified as Kenneth Amadi, has been arrested by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team in Rivers State, for reportedly stealing a sum of €14,000 (about N6m).

The dispatch rider was arrested along a colleague, Innocent Nnorom, who allegedly helped him to change the hard currency into naira and got N30,000 from the sum. It was gathered that Kenneth was sent from a Diamond Bank branch in Oyingbo, Port Harcourt to pick up some empty bags at another branch on Ikpere Road.

He reportedly found the money in an envelope left inside one of the bags. However an official who gave the bag to Keneth, called him three days after to ask about the missing envelope. The 37-year-old, who had stopped coming to work, admitted to have found the envelope and promised to return it.

However after he reneged on his promise and relocated from his residence with his wife and their newborn child, the case was subsequently reported to the police.
