CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi
CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force has stated that it is unacceptable for Nigerians to pay to report cases or treat petitions.
Adejobi who stated that it is criminal gave the clarification while reacting to claims made by Twitter users that they were asked to pay monies when they visited a police station to report cases.
A Twitter user @ifedibatobenna2 had taken to his handle to inform the police spokesperson that he was made to pay N150, 000 when he went to Zone 2 to write a petition against someone.
''Sir I went to zone2 to write a petition against someone...150k fiam..is it lawful??... please kindly give me a reply... Thanks''
Adejobi took his time to respond, stating that Nigerians are not to pay for anything when they visit stations to report cases. According to him, the force tries to an extent to provide stationaries for stations so cases can be documented when reported.
