Any security operative who extorts Nigerians is an armed robber – Police PRO

Olumuyiwa Adejobi

According to the official spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, any police officer or security personnel who unlawfully extorts innocent Nigerians will be deemed as an armed robber.

Adejobi made this statement in response to a social media user who criticized the police for forcefully apprehending him.

Sharing the debit alert of the money collected from him, the user wrote: “So the policemen came to my estate yesterday evening around 7 PM and packed all the men in the estate. We all slept in the cell last night for no reason. When we were called for ‘Questioning’ which was more or less a dictation, they said, ‘You Dey do Yahoo.’ I denied it because I don’t even know how Yahoo works.

“Next thing was to write a statement saying I’m either a cultist or an armed robber. We all refused writing statements without lawyers present, so we were forced to sleep in the cell. This morning, over 500k was extorted from us in general.”

Tagging the Force PRO, a user said: “As PRO of Nigeria Police Force, do something to this dirty stuff your mates always do every day. Police are your friend indeed.”

Adejobi, in his response, wrote: “Any armed policeman or security operative who forcefully extorts an innocent Nigerian is as good as an armed robber.

“Extortion is never part of any agency’s mandate, either armed or not. We condemn such, and even the IGP has made it clear.”
