According to the Nigerian man, the Lagos policeman thought he was in for a big kill, after he saw his account balance and tried extorting 150K from him after initially asking for an android phone. Instagram user @saddam_x_x who shared the story, stated that he drugged the policeman to escape being extorted.
I don’t know the reason why a police man will send me this text, because he was not able to extort me off 150k his a surulere police officer known as Uche (Felix) from Awka state. He initially billed me 300k and asked for an android phone….I laughed in my mind, I just showed him a little bit of foolishness in wisdom and his pissed and sending me threat messages? What is wrong Nigeria police turning into?
This is coming few months after a four policemen attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in the Lagos State Command were dismissed for alleged professional misconduct, corrupt practices and discreditable conduct. The names of the dismissed officers were given as Adeoye Adekunle, Adeniran Adebowale, Agbi Lucky and Odighe Hehosa.
It was gathered that the men were charged to court on offences of armed robbery, kidnapping, unlawful detention, intimidation and threatening violence against one Mr Chukwudi Odionye, aka Bishop. The Police Public Relations Officer, Zone 2 Police Command, CSP Dolapo Badmus, in a statement said the command received a petition by Odionye against the four officers on May 2, 2018.
Odionye, in the petition, was said to have alleged that on June 4, 2017, he was in his house in the Alagbado area of Lagos when the four armed officers allegedly stormed his house to arrest him on the allegation of performing fake miracles.
“He stated that after his arrest, he was taken to one hotel in Agege where he was detained and threatened to be killed if he failed to cooperate. He explained further that on the following day, June 5, 2017, he was taken to a bank where he was made to transfer N7m to one of the policemen’s account,” the statement read in part.
