But surprisingly, the officer who didn’t have the chage at that moment insisted on getting it and so delayed the driver and his passengers till he could eventually provided 800 Naira change.🙆🏼♂️🙆🏼♂️🙆🏼♂️🙆🏼♂️, what a shame?
Editorial: Thanks to the social media, men of low integrity like this should be shown the way out of our esteemed police. The Inspector General of Police should please kindly do something about this. Sir, you have been able to prove that your integrity is unquestionable, your love for Nigerians is intact and that you are a professional and gentleman police officer. This officer should be made to face the law. The entire action was captured on camera by the agitating passenger, though, The location of the incident is not ascertained, but it appeared to be a location in the Eastern part of Nigeria. You could begin from there sir.
