Police road-blocks continues in Lagos streets

Police Extortion

Police extortion at roadblocks is a rampant criminal act in Nigeria police force

Despite the proscription of police road-blocks by the Inspector General of Police, many officers still indulge in the crime across Nigeria. An Okada man says he lost N8,000.

This goes to all relevant police bosses – the Lagos state commissioner of police, his deputy, the task force boss. I need them to do something about the way the police are still extorting and robbing Okada riders and Danfo drivers in Mafoluku Oshodi.

The Makinde and the Akinpelu police are still disturbing, hectically,  after the IGP has banned road-blocks.

I have paid N8,000 on several occasion to them. Please send your task force here to deliver us from this thieves.

Here is their secret hide out and hours of operation:

1. Oja bus-stop  Mafoluku, Oshodi from 8pm to 10pm,

2. Domino at Mafoluku road, Mafoluku Oshodi from 8pm to 10pm.

3. Oshodi road at postoffice, Mafoluku Oshodi 1pm and 8pm

4. St Paul street off Makinde, Mafoluku, Oshodi 8pm to 10pm

The complain by Okada Man is corroborated by a different report Nigeria Police Watch received from another citizen reporter concerning the same area, Makinde – Oshodi.

Inspite of IG odering all police officers to stop roadblock or check points, the Makinde police officers still mount road blocks at night forcefuly dispossessing Okada riders and commercial bus drivers their hard earned money.

The locations they stage these roadblocks are Eweje streets, Orowora Street and those junction around and near Makinde Police Station in Mafuluku Oshodi.

    i think the police is now taking vengence on the okada riders now. As police men have raided the entire oshodi/mafoluku and seized bikes. am wandering if this is part of the 491 roads declared as “no okada” zone by the state government.
