Identity Of Police Officer Asking Money For Tinted Glass Permit
The name of the cop in a popular video who demanded a payment from a motorist for driving without tinted glass permit has been revealed.
The driver accused the police officer of requesting a payment of 20,000 Naira in a tweet on his Twitter account.
The incident occurred only days after the Nigeria Police Force prohibited its officers from asking motorists for customs paperwork or tinted glass permits at checkpoints around the nation.
Following the suspension of the granting of tinted glass licenses, the notification was made.
Nigerians have been urged to report police officers who delay them over tinted glass permits and customs documentation, according to the force’s acting spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi.
Adejobi wrote, “No policeman should demand your customs papers. No. Except they are on joint operation, but not just on mere routine checks. And for now, we have suspended (the) issuance of tinted glass permits. So, we don’t expect our men to disturb Nigerians on this.”
Adejobi revealed the identity of the police officer while responding to the event after police officers were cautioned against bothering Nigerians.
Abiodun Alabi, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, has taken over the investigation, according to Adejobi.
He wrote on Twitter, ”My people, this policeman has been identified as Insp Dele Ruben, attached to Area F, Ikeja, Lagos State. The Commissioner of Police Lagos State has taken over the matter for necessary action. I believe in his action and judgment on the matter. Let’s wait for the feedback. Thanks.”
