My experience with the Nigerian Police, so disappointed in them
After a rough encounter with my uncle who attacked and injured me for no just reason, I decided to report to the Police, “may be they might bring him in and teach him a lesson” I thought. I got to the police station, wrote my statement to a female police, who had a divided attention as she was busy on her whatsApp “chatting”.
After writing my giving statement, having answered all questions asked, I was like “C’mon lets go arrest that Bastard” But I was rather shocked by what came next.
“You are going to pay 1000 naira for the statement you wrote, then I’ll assign an officer to you. They will tell you how much you’ll give them” She said.
WTF Really!!! I must say I was amazed by her audacity, so you mean I have to pay for you to protect me, after collecting your salary, after taking the ones you get from the roads, you still want me to pay you to arrest someone, or at least warn him. Oh! Maybe the money is for transportation.
This Experience got me thinking, what if I was actually chased by Cultist who wanted to kill me or They were some set of boys who threatened my life? What if I had no money, would they be willing to go. One thing I learnt from this experience is that, the Nigerian Police are Incompetent and should be reformed, forget about #ENDSARS and think more of #POLICEREFORM.
Finally, I wasted my 3k.
Stay Safe and Be Careful
