That’s the rot in the Nigerian Police Force is far from over is an understatement, as young Nigerian, returning from United Arab Emirate ran to Police men that got hold of him taking him to their Police Station at Area E Police Command, Festac town, Lagos State.
As always, the man becomes a suspect on all sorts of thrump up charges, cumulating to the demand of #5, 000.000.00 to avert prosecution. He eventually settled the rogue police men with #200, 000.00 to secure his freedom.
Having regained his freedom, he alerted the tweeter community by sending out some tweets where he narrated his ordeals, promoting some retweets from some activist who swung into action, making sure that the Area E Police Command, Festac town, refunded the #200, 000.00 extorted from the Nigerian returnee.
See the victim’s tweets below :
I was actually the victim of this harassment Yesterday by a group of police men who forcefully harassed me , took my phones out from my bag and took me to the police station in Area E Festac town.
As the pressure mounts, the rogue police men at Area E Police Command, Festac twon, refunded the money extorted from the victim.
We call for urgent reform of the tainted force which can hardly boast of responsible men and women in their ranks and file. We are still calling on Bubu to #EndSARS.
