Temitope Oluwa, an Ondo State citizen, described how Nigerian police officers attacked him and extorted N40,000 from him at a checkpoint in Omu-Aran, Kwara State's Ifelodun Local Area.



Oluwa stated that police officers halted a bus he boarded at the Omu-Aran checkpoint on his route from Akure, Ondo State, to attend a friend's wedding in Kwara.

"The only identification that the policemen had was a jacket." They were putting on their mufti clothes. They were all armed, including the driver.
They stopped my car, which is public transport, and told us to come down. When I came down, one officer was joking with me. I responded well. I asked them why they were checking our phones. I said I thought it was not legal, based on what @Princemoye1 always says. I never knew that was an offence.
“I was slapped from behind so hard that my phone fell off my hand. Only God knows what these guys are doing." I was detained and told that I should call @Princemoye1. ”
He continued: "After several hours, I complained that I was hungry, my phone wasn’t even in the station, and I couldn’t make calls to any of my friends either. I knew I’d have to come here to report my case; hence I played with them because they were telling me to bring N200,000.
I had two bundles of 200 notes (N40,000) which I held for my friend’s wedding. I had to beg them to collect the money. They collected it and they were just releasing me at 9 a.m. It’s 3 pm now.

"@Princemoye1 sir, all I could see was the plate on their patrol vehicle, which is NPF 558 OD. The name of the officer that detained me is INSPECTOR ALEX. The name of the officer that released me is INSPECTOR AJAYI. ”

Meanwhile, while reacting to this incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Kwara State Command, Okansanmi Ajayi, said the suspected police officers had been arrested by the state command and the matter was being thoroughly investigated.

"The victims have been contacted and invited to come and identify the men for proper investigation," Ajayi added.
