Most Nigerians have come to accept bribe-taking by the Nigerian police and army as a norm. A lot of cases where some officers were captured on camera taking bribe at different checkpoints across the country have been featured on Naijauto.
However, what Nigerians are yet to see is an officer who was lying to his colleagues over the phone about the amount of money he took from a motorist.
The four-minute video showed the officer sitting beside a driver and having a back and forth conversation over how much the motorist should give him.
The police officer requested for ₦20,000 but the driver was trying to give him ₦15,000 and begging that the amount be reduced to what he can afford. After a while of discussion, the officer agreed with the amount of ₦10,000. However, he called his colleague and told that the driver only gave him ₦5,000.
The driver was also asked to tell other officers the same lie as well.
