Nigerian Police Caught on Camera asking for Bribe

Updated Saturday 5 August 2017 23:20
The Lagos State Police Command has dismissed a police sergeant, Chris Omeleze, who was caught on video camera extorting N25,000 from a motorist in Lagos.

In the video footage made available to our correspondent, an unidentified male motorist is seen pleading with the Omeleze to accept N2,000 for a traffic offence but the sergeant blatantly refuses.

The sergeant, who is seen on the passenger seat, places a call to his superior on the telephone, saying the motorist’s car must be impounded for refusing to ‘Cooperate.’

The policeman, who is attached to the State Traffic Division, Ikeja, was arrested on Tuesday after the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, saw the video which went viral on the Internet.

It was learnt that the Commissioner of Police, Umar Manko, ordered that the sergeant should face an orderly room trial.
