“Appreciate those who stand out there day and night for lesser pay” Dear SP Ben, Nigerians are not having it any easier!! Some of those your men harass and extort are also earning lesser pay or no pay at all!!! This your angle is why Your men continue to oppress the people. 1/6

I finally carried out my social experiment. I drove around Ikeja at about 11:50pm, in mufti, in a private car. I passed through two police points. I spent five seconds at the first without a word from the police officer. He simply waved me on. 1/6

And No!! Your survey is not accurate!!! As a security agent, Your facial looks will give you away 70% of the time! Why not add some little swaga to it?? I can arrange dreadlocks for you. Have some nice tats on. Or put a laptop somewhere visible in your car…

Gold chains nko? Were you wearing some of them? And what type of car were you driving? How about you also go with a couple of your guys too? Or you and just your babe? Bros, you have no idea what Nigerian Youths really face in the hands of Police officers!!

And no my dear SP Ben! You have more Bad eggs than good!!! Let’s not pretend that 90% of the roadblocks set up are not out there to extort Nigerians of their hard earned money!! Most Nigerians see police officers on the road and feel threatened instead of feeling secured.

Not everyone who drives a car in Nigeria is rich. For most, it is a necessity other than luxury. Some have not even finished paying for the car… some others go finish work, use the same car to dey pick passengers after work and police go stop am collect the money from am…

Because “Lesser Pay” We were advocating for these things for you people. We still are. But Police officers still continue to oppress and brutalize us. All we want from the Police is to do better and understand that we are human beings like them. We are all going through Life!!
