July 10, 2014 – “Nigerian Police Are Armed Robbers’ – Lady Narrates How Her Brother Was Robbed By Policemen In Orile Lagos

A Twitter user with handle @beeliva few hours ago took to Twitter to express her concern over police brutality in Orile area of Lagos.

Check out what the lady said:

Ok. So I’m about to tweet some stuff about the Nigerian Police.I’m fed up with their misuse of power and the thieves masquerading as police.

So my brother was on his way to the market in Orile to pick up some stuff for a little studio he is trying to set up
He was stopped by the police as he was about to board a bus at orile. The man started to pat him down asking him where he was going

As soon as he felt the wad of cash in my brother’s pocket, he told him to follow him and board their vehicle. My brother asked him why.
As soon as my brother did, the fool signalled to the other policemen and they came up, and beat up my brother &put him in their bus.
They drove off in their bus & pointed a gun at his thigh telling him that they know his a robber,took the money from him

Asking him, “oya! Bring the gun!” All this while, they held on to his phone. They told him they didn’t want to kill him even though they
Knew he was a robber. They drove up to some place pushed him out of the bus, threw 200naira at him (that they found in his pocket)
And his phone too, and told him to basically get lost. That if he told anyone what happened, they’d shoot him &say he was an armed robber


My brother worked HARD to get what little money he could &try to set up a studio and be the killer-producer I know him to be.
To be robbed like this so blatantly by the ones who are supposed to be trained to protect, IS NOT RIGHT!!!!

This is not the first time. They have stopped him and harassed him some years ago. He got away unscathed that time, thank God.
This time, they beat him. I can only thank GOD that they didn’t shoot him or kill him.
They killed a friend of mine a few years ago in Lagos too. And they said it was robbers that killed him.IN THE MORNING! @ a bus stop

Who can I talk to? Who will help? I am pained! I am angry!!!!!!!!! I can hear myself screaming in my head. This cannot go on now!!!!!!!

Another Twitter user narrated her own ordeal:

@beeliva I was robbed too by armed Nigerian policemen at Lagos checkpoint on my way home when I was still working with KPMG. They r thieves.

I read @beeliva’s TL & shook my head.Those idiots once accused me, @Tolulondon & Femi of robbery. Tolu will never forget that SLAP!

Lord have mercy can this be true… What if these are robbers in police uniform????

Orile area of Lagos is a dangerous hideout for criminals.

The thieves there rob in the daylight they have no fear for police or even OPC.. They are armed and dangerous.

This is the same place where Cossy Orjiakor was robbed.

Proper investigation must be conducted to know the truth.

    there is no need for further investigations. what that lady said is true esp that orile area and surulere. i was sitting in front of my house and a policeman walked up to me and asked me what i was doing there? i told him that i was sitting in front of my house and he signalled to two other men and they drag me into their bus. While i was still trying to drag with them, they collected my phone,held my mouth so that i wont shout and pointed two guns to me that if i shout and anybody comes out, they would shoot me and the person. When we got to the station, i was told to write a statement that i was a robber or i should pay 10k. if i pay 10k, they would release me and replace me with another person. That is how crazy our police is.

    At last! and what did the Police do? hurray they said…they laughed, sighed and went to the next victim, twats… shame on the police force, Inspector General of Police, Police PRO, etc I hope you guys are reading this and hearing the cries of the people you ought to protect, somebody tell the IGP to go and do real job instead of taking on the simply job of controlling traffic in Abuja, looking for publicity, and trying to seem humble…. do the job you were sworn to do, you have criminals with Police authority behind them, robbing with impunity the very citizens they ought to protect… you guys knows the thieves amongst you… purge yourselves…one day for the thief…………..

    Well, I don’t want to believe all hope is lost concerning the Nigeria Police. We still have some good officers out there. The present Lagos State Commissioner of Police (CP) Mr. Fatai Owoseni is a good man, is someone that have the interest of the people. He will be glad to look into this matters. I’m sure if our friends could see him or send a petition to him via the State Police Command, action will be taking. On the other hand, Lagos state is a very large metropolitan city and fighting crime too is not easy. Our environmental design and design of our public spaces have also fuel some of this crime. There is need to change our orientation toward security.
    Power supply still needs to be critical addressed. The issue of improper Uniformed Officers, bearing fire arms in the name of Stop and Search should be address (We don’t need rebels posing as Police Officers), I also wonder why officers who go surveillance (Close observation of a person or group, especially one under suspicion or the act of observing or the condition of being observed) should allowed to operate uncheck. This also a gap that needs to be urgently addressed. Surveillance team should have a reporting line, they cultivate, information, process it and send to the operation people. But the reversed is the case here.
    I’m sure what our country is passing through today (Corruption) started like a child’s play uncheck, but today is become a very big overwhelming problem that continues shallow every government that is trying address it. The Police can single itself out in the leadership of the current Commission of Police (CP).
    Design of Public Space: The immediate past governor of Lagos State Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola ‘SAN’ has tried to re-design areas Like Obalende, Oshodi, Gbagada etc. to cob criminal activities within the state. No doubt, it has worked to a great extend. I believe the CP can work with the current governor elect to sustain this trend for the overall security of the state.
    Abandoned properties within the state used as criminal hideout should be identified and destroyed and space used for recreation. I am sure the CP has a good relationship with the governor to achieve this.
    Installation of Street lightings is another means with which crime can be fought. Most criminal would want operate in dark hours, street lightings will no doubt reveal these group and possibly give a warning of the danger ahead to our night crawlers.
    Orientation: The police image in the country from Lagos to Maiduguri is not different. This is because the public has formed negative opinions over the years from different happenings involving the Police. It is my personal opinion that it can still be remedied. To do this, some radical changes needs to take;
    1. Shown Corruption
    2. Remove favoritism
    3. Shown Nepotism
    4. Break ethic affiliation
    5. Shown god-fatherism
    6. Shown political affiliation
    7. Shown cultism
    8. Insist on standard and procedures
    9. Create a standard and reboots internal control unit (Police the Police) with men of integrity
    10. Good reward and punishment structure (the Carrot and Stick or the Hot stove Structure)
    11. Vet current officers or possibly do a due diligence on senior Police office.
    12. Those who don’t fit in the “WILL OF PROGRESS” should be allowed to go RETIRED. Those who fit in should be encouraged.

    My most importantly let continue to pray for OUR POLICE. We all need a reformed Police and Policing. whether we like it or not somebody must do the job. Our voice must count. After all my Tax and your Tax is what the police Uniform, Arms and Ammunition and pay come from.

    I stop Here for now
