Nigerians on social media have reacted to the video of a policeman collecting and pocketing an undisclosed amount of money from the motorist.
In a video shared by SaharaReporters, the policeman was pictured pocketing an undisclosed amount of money while telling the driver “number four”.
According to reports, the incident was said to have happened on Tuesday along Idiroko Road, Ogun State.
Motorists also lamented, urging the Nigerian government to save them by intervening,
“That’s how they do; not only the police, there are the Nigerian Customs, soldiers and others. They give you a special number after collecting money from you. We’re sick and tired of this daily extortion,” a motorist said.
“They sometimes indiscriminately seize our vehicles and force us to pay huge sums of money before they are let go. Their wahala (trouble) is too much,” another victim lamented.
