A Nigerian man has taken to Twitter to narrate how he recovered N100,000 stolen from him by Nigerian police officers.
Oluwagbadura said the police officers forced him to transfer the money to them. He called them out on Twitter and recovered his money.
See his story below:
I NEED HELP!
At around 13:45 the Nigerian police stopped me at Soliki Aguda, Lagos, and conducted the usual search. After NOT finding anything on me, they proceeded to seize my phone and company laptop and tagged me a yahoo boy. My crime, they said, is that I do not have an ID card as a freelancer.
They searched my phone. They called me a criminal for chatting with my friends on WhatsApp. They threatened to shoot and lock me up!
Next, they took me to their station, just few meters away, then forced me to admit to being a criminal. I refused.
They then asked me to write a statement and at the end I signed papers to bail myself. I transferred 100k to the POS vendor, and then paid 2k naira for charges. See screenshot.
There were 6 officers.
Names of the officers I could get
⁃Ojo ozeigbe – this man threatened to deal with me in cell and nothing will happen
The rest were in mufti including the one who acted as their lead.
All of these things happened at the Police divisional headquarters, soliki aguda.
I need Justice and my money back, please!
Everyone who can see this, please help retweet to get the Police’s attention for justice.
