    Police do this things everyday to young men, they see you and ask for your phone and start searching your phone. It's illegal and lawlessness.

    I live around that area, Ori oke precisely, and it's been a constant practice recently where they harass people asking to go through their phones, and label them yahoo guys. Although, I haven't been a victim, but I've been a witness severally. People who live around the roundabout can be very helpful with video recordings, as they see it happen daily, and are close enough.

    Even they entered my car on Agege motor road, around the airforce base. When they asked for bribe i told them i gave all cash to my aunt i was visiting. They now asked for my atm card and asked the younger police to escort me to show me the nearest atm with a gun in hand. He collected a large sum from my atm before vacating my car. Ambode pls save us from Armed robbers in uniform

    Similar thing happened to my husband and I in December 2015 @ Adekunle (just in front of their station) Herbert Macauley Yaba. It was 5-ish am, the obviously drunk police man stopped our car, ordered me out of the car, cocked his gun, got into the car and asked my hubby to drive off a few metres away then he dispossessed hubby of every single cash he found in his wallet, after which he left.
    Some police men are ARMED ROBBERS.

    If Nigerians are treated like this in their own country, then foreign countries cannot be blamed for not treating them better. These wicked actions of the police against innocent citizens who they are meant to serve and protect is a steady and relentless destruction of the Nigerian society.

    If security operatives who are supposed to protect citizens from thieves turn armed robbers, Who will now protect citizens from armed robbers? Police is your friend; whose friend? Still thinking............ To tell the truth, there has never been a day I pray for any of my family to wear that black/blue uniform even if it is the last job on earth.

    Naija police, mo beri o! Although there are still fruits among the weeds.

    ***Hope my name no dey show sha. Make dem no come arrest me say dem see skeleton for my empty cupboard oooo.******
