Police extortion is really becoming alarming, I just wonder why men and women in uniform have suddenly become criminals, men who were given jobs by the government to protect the lives and properties of Nigerians, have now become the real criminals on the road. I remember 2 years ago, when I travelled to Cote D'Ivoire by road, there you will see how corrupt Africa police officers are, from Nigeria down to the French speaking country, they kept extorting travellers, the most annoying of them are the Nigeria Police Force on the road, as a Nigerian, you will be very ashamed when other countries with the West Africa region begins to speak of the Nigeria Police. It's annoying and very exasperating to talk about the Nigeria Police Force.
A man by the name Obioratook to his Twitter handle to berate and blasts the Nigeria Police Force, over the criminal practices of their men on the roads of Nigeria. He said over the weekend, him and his fellow ex corp members were returning home from their "National Youth Service Corp Pass Out Party", Enugu State going to Onitsha in Anambra State where they live. He said when they got to a junction called four corners in Enugu, the met a police checkpoint because they were driving and they got stopped by the officers
And before they could say much, the officer above had labelled them fraudsters simply because they had cars and alluding it to having arrest some corp members in the past, who are fraudsters. When they objected, the officer threatening to kill them and give report that they are fraudsters, who were trying to escape. He said they were also told never to use their phones as in to make calls otherwise, they will kill them.
He said they demanded from the sum of N300,000 (Three Hundred Thousand Naira) before they will allow them to go but that they told them they don't have such amount on them, that the only money he has in his account was N50,000 (Fifty Thousand Naira), which the officers collected from them through a Point Of Sales (P.O.S) agent around them, as directed by the officers
After he came back with the money, the officer collected the money from him and counted it to be sure it's complete before letting them go. He's asking the Nigeria Police Force to help him get back his money from the criminals in uniform, they employed and put on the roads.
