10 policemen arrested for illegal road blocks, extortion in Lagos

The Zone 2 Police Command headquarters, Onikan, Lagos,has arrested 10 Policemen for mounting illegal road blocks along the Bagagry/Seme border expressway.
There have been serious complaints by Nigerians, especially drivers, plying the route to the AIG Muhammed Ali, on the activities of security agents, especially the Police,who mount multiple check points on the route.
Ali , during a press briefing yesterday, lamented the untold hardship Nigerians, especially businessmen were subjected to by the dubious police officers.
“When I assumed office as the AIG here, I was inundated with complaints of the activities of security agents,who mounted illegal checkpoints for the purpose of extortion, and I said something must be done to address this. So we set up a team of Detectives from the Zonal X-Squad to investigate and report back. I can authoritatively tell you that over 10 policemen have been arrested and are being detained for necessary disciplinary actions. One funny thing about the people is that most of them are not serving policemen either at the border or in Badagry.
“They would just go there, mount road block and start collecting money from travelers and businessmen doing their legitimate businesses. We have internal mechanism of dealing with them . The exercise of raiding policemen on illegal duty is going to be sustained, because the IGP Olukayode Egbetokun, has met with the Controller- General of Customs Service ,Wale Adeniyi, on how to collaborate and checkmate the menace on that route” he added.
