Nigeria, the country of eternal ironies and disappointments that never ceases to baffle its citizens and foreigners is at it again. Another sad tale of extortion and assault
by some officers of the Nigerian Police Force is being reported by foremost legal blog, Legal Naija Blawg, in an altruistic bid to bring justice to the victim and punish the erring officers.
See screenshots of chats sent by the Blawg to Lagos State Assistant Commissioner of Police, Yomi Shogunle, narrating the criminal incident below:
That the persons who should give protection are same persons to inflict harm is inexplicable.
Kudos to Legal Naija Blawg for pursuing this, heavy knocks on these errant officers. Hopefully, the responsible persons of authority in the Nigerian Police Force eventually mete the appropriate sanctions and not just pay lip service to the supposed fight against corruption and impunity.
The Nigerian Police Force scores a 0/10 on the K ‘n’ K wow-meter
