How Police Extort ₦100,000 from Driver on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway

The Nigeria Police Force in the wake of investigations into one of the officers who was seen on Twitter with an POS is not done with extortion accusations.

Another person on Twitter has shared his experience after he was forced to pay ₦50,000 by officers at Ijebu-Ife along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

@iamDjSteve presented the vehicle documents and identified himself as a PCRC member at Bayelsa State but was parked and asked to pay.

Despite one of the officers talking to the vehicle owners, he was delayed and asked to pay ₦100,000 initially but pleaded with ₦10,000 on him which was refused.

He was then conveyed in a towing van stopped by the police to withdraw at the nearby community and is pleading to have his money refunded.

Steve however identified the officer’s badge number as 497336 and another officer in the team as Olatunji Ramoni with van number NPF 6842 C.

The Police Head of Complaint Response Unit, CRU, ACP Markus Ishaku Bashiran, has however responded to give hope that the officers “should be preparing to visit the Fhq too. Perhaps they have an explanation we may not be aware of.”

The Federal Government of Nigeria has granted amnesty to 2,600 inmates at the Correctional centres across the country.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, made this known during a press conference.

The affected inmates includes:

  1. Inmates that are 60 years and above
  2. Those suffering from ill-health likely to terminate in death
  3. Convicts serving 3 years and above and have less than 6 months to serve
  4. Inmate with mental issues
  5. Inmates with option of fine not exceeding ₦50,000

41 Federal inmates and 29 FCT inmates making a total of 70 inmates who met the above criteria will however be released today from the Kuje Custodial Centre in Abuja.

This amnesty does not apply to inmates sentenced for violent extreme offences such as terrorism, kidnapping, armed banditry, rape, human trafficking, culpable homicide and so on.

The Governors of the 36 states under whose jurisdiction most of the inmates were incarcerated are expected to complete the exercise in line with the federal principle.

LAWMA Rewards Outstanding Sweeper

The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has handsomely rewarded an outstanding highway sweeper, Fasasi Raheemat Oluwabukola, on behalf of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, incident commander of the state.

Raheemat was sighted and photographed along Dolphin/Osbourne Road, her operational corridor, by Ms. Adebisi Awoniyi, a resident of Dolphin Estate, a photo that later went viral on the social media, few days ago.

Speaking during the brief presentation, the MD of LAWMA, Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin, noted that the recognition was to appreciate Raheemat’s constant diligence and impassioned service, as attested by Ms. Awoniyi, who claimed to have regularly observed her, during her daily work-out sessions.

The LAWMA boss noted further, that there was reward for diligent hard work, because one could never tell who was watching at any point in time.

Responding, Raheemat expressed profound gratitude to Mr Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for the rather unexpected recognition, stressing that it was most unexpected, as she was only doing her duty to the best of her ability.
