Nigerian Police Still At Bribery And Extortion... When Will This Ever End?

Despite the protests and several awareness campaigns on social profiling and Extorting Nigerian citizens, there have been zero change as the Nigerian Police are still seriously at it.

Here is the story of a young man I stumbled upon on twitter.



This eventually came to the attention of the Police and they have requested for more information and evidence to track the perpetrators of the extortion, but it doesn’t erase the fact that it happened in the first place.

Have you ever been a victim of a situation like this? How was the matter handled?

Its quite disheartening reading stories such as this. This guy could have missed his flight and it would have cost him more money. Our police and politicians are all the same. If there were to be a law like what you have in China where corruption is treated with the death penalty you will still have corrupt police men. Corruption will take a long time to be eradicated but the government needs to keep working on it. Firstly there needs to be a massive improvement in the welfare of officers with regards to better accommodation and improved salaries. The government needs to multiply police schools and improve it the way its being done for military persons, so that their children can have access to quality education. The few things will help to improve the police force and motivate police officers to give their best to the service of the nation
