Nigerian Police Say Bribe-Hungry Officer Has Been Arrested
The Policeman involved in the unprofessional and shameful act as seen in a video clip currently in circulation on the social media has been identified.
He is a Sergeant with Force Number 192954 (Name withheld) attached to the Lagos State Command Motor Traffic Division (State MTD).
A statement on the facebook page of the Nigeria Police said the accused officer has been arrested and currently in detention awaiting the commencement of his orderly room trial (Nigeria Police version of court).
It also said the Inspector General of Police IGP MD Abubakar has directed the Commissioner of Police Lagos State to ensure that the orderly room trial is concluded in record time.
The IGP therefore reiterates his assurance to the public of his zero tolerance to any form of corrupt practices involving any Police officer. He equally advises citizens to take advantage of the use of the Nigeria Police Force’ complaint email address; firstname.lastname@example.org which guarantees their confidentiality in forwarding all manners of complaints of unethical conduct involving any police officer or security agent for necessary action.
