We May Treat Policemen Fond of Taking Innocent Nigerians to ATMs As Armed Robbers - Police Spokesperson, Olumiywa Adejobi

Posted by Thandiubani on Fri 03rd Jun, 2022 - tori.ng

Police officers fond of forcing Nigerians to ATMs to extort them may be in for serious trouble.

 
CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi has issued a warning to police officers forcing Nigerians to ATMs to extort them.
 
The spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, said that the recalcitrant police officers who have formed the habit of forcing Nigerians to the ATM and banks to extort money from them, may soon be treated as armed robbers.
 
Adejobi stated this on his Twitter handle.
 
He wrote;
 
''Forceful Extortion by Armed Policemen is tantamount to Armed Robbery. We may treat some of our recalcitrant policemen who are fond of taking innocent Nigerians to ATM, Banks or hidden arenas to forcefully extort them, with arms, as armed robbers.

By simple definition and interpretation of law, anyone who possesses firearms or offensive weapons and takes ones property with element of force or violence is simply armed robbery, nothing more. We detest and condemn this development or action which is in total contravention of our rules and regulations and ethics as a responsible institution. We will not treat such cases with kid gloves anymore. We urge Nigerians to report any case of this nature to our stations for necessary action. Thanks.''
