An uber driver, Solomon Osinloye has narrated how some Lagos State Police officers cornered him and tried getting him to pay them N50, 000.
He made this known on Twitter on Wednesday. He said they planted drugs in his car in order to implicate him.
Police planted drugs in my Uber. Asked me to pay 50k, I told them it’s not possible because I have asthma + I did a drug test recently and I have my results with me. They let me go but kept on saying “if we wan set you up, we go set you up, all that one you Dey talk. Na English”
The other guys were arrested because they had juju with them.
Nigerian police are not your friends. One time I almost got arrested for carrying a mouth spray. They searched me and found a mouth spray in my pocket. You could see the joy on their faces because they thought it contained something illegal. I told them it was just mouth spray to keep my breath fresh. They didn’t listen to me, they started pushing me to their van. All the while I kept on saying read the gaddam thing, he looked at it but unfortunately reading and writing is not a skill that is required to join the NPF. I got to the van and then their Sherlock took the spray
Read it and said, “why you Dey use mouth spray? Fine boy like you Dey get mouth odour”
Y’all seem to really like police stories.
One advice is to turn on your phone touch and search with them whenever they search your car. That way all of us go dey discover the drugs.
