Lately, the Nigerian police have been making the headlines but, for the wrong reasons. Just last month, we reported about an officer who killed a commercial cyclist in Aba over his refusal to give him ₦100 bribe.
And right now, the latest reports reaching Naijauto say a police officer attached to Ibadan State Police Command smashed the windscreen of a commercial taxi driver at a checkpoint for refusing to give the usual ₦100 bribe.
The incident was said to have happened at Odejayi close, near Loyola College Ibadan. The policeman had stretched out his hand to collect the money, being the usual business, but the taxi driver wasn't ready to part with ₦100. The picture of the incident was captured and posted online by an unidentified social media user.
