Police extortion and illegal roadblocks in Port Harcourt

By Ukari Obene

Some members of the Nigeria Police Force have continued to mount illegal road blocks on the streets of Port Harcourt with the sole purpose of collecting N50 from innocent and law abiding motorists.

These policemen do not stop private vehicles because drivers of such vehicles will never give them any money. Any time you hear the policemen saying,’bring the paper’, the ‘paper’ is not the driver’s particulars, but N50 bribe. What a shame!

Why can’t the authorities flush these bad eggs out of the Nigeria Police Force, and stop this nonsense from our roads?
