Police Officers Arrested For Extorting N320k From A Lady In Lagos
Police officers who robbed a Nigerian lady of N320,000 have been arrested.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed the arrest of the officers this morning.
“The policemen involved in this case have all been identified and are currently at the State Headquarters. All attempts to reach the complainant have proven abortive. We would appreciate any information on how to reach her. DM is always open.” He tweeted.
The back story:
The lady had taken to social media to lament following the robbery.
She said that she was on her way to Lekki Phase II when the officers accosted her.
According to her, the Policemen pulled over their car at a checkpoint in Lekki Conservation Center and searched their belongings. She gladly handed over her suitcase to the authorities because it contained nothing incriminating. When one of the Policemen questioned what she was doing with weed, she was taken aback.
If she didn’t give them N400,000k, they threatened to hand her over to the NDLEA. She ended up giving them N320,000k out of fear.
