The Force Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Police, Muyiwa Adejobi, on Saturday reacted to the tweet of a man who alleged that policemen from the Lagos State Police Command beat him up and later collected the sum of N30,000 from him.
Adejobi urged the man to furnish him with more details about the incident, especially information about where and when did the incident take place, among others.

The man, whose Twitter handle is @BigDarren11, disclosed in his tweets addressed to Adejobi that three policemen stopped him and beat him up on Friday night along Ikeja-Oshodi road when he was about to climb a commercial motorcycle for a trip.
He added that after allegedly beating him up, the policemen took him to their station where he was reportedly locked up in the cell.
He was later asked to bail himself and he alleged that he eventually paid the sum of N30,000 before he was allowed to leave the station.
He therefore urged Adejobi to help him look into the matter because he was not happy that the money was allegedly collected from him.
