In the video that was posted on twitter by Instablog9ja, the officer who was and aged man was seen shamelessly asking for a bribe from a man. They were both speaking in the Yoruba dialect and the man was begging the police officer to let him go. He refused and asked for money and at one point, he offered to do a transfer. The officer rejected that and he could he heard saying: Give me cash and not transfer, will I eat please?. All through the discussion, he did not know that he was being filmed.

They quoted instablog9ja's post and revealed that the officer who was seen in the video behaving in an unprofessional and corrupt manner, has been identified, arrested, disarmed and detained for further investigation and disciplinary action.

The swiftness with which they acted is really encouraging and it speaks well of the commitment of the Nigerian police to fishing out and punishing corrupt officers. Actions like this will surely discourage others who engage in unprofessional acts. Share this on so that others can learn.
