4 Corrupt Policemen Kidnapped, Robbed Togo Returnee In Badagry Lagos Nigeria

Some police officers attached to Ijanikin Division in Lagos State Police Command have been arrested for allegedly robbing one Theodore Ifunnaya of 350,000 CFA (about N221,508).

The police spokesman in Lagos, CSP Chike Oti, said that the victim was a Nigerian based in Togo.

Oti said that the policemen faced dismissal if found guilty, stressing, however, that the victim was not stripped naked during interrogation as being alleged in some quarters.

Oti said that the affected policemen had been transferred to the Provost Section of the Command for investigation.

The NAN gathered that the officers allegedly accosted the victim coming from Togo to celebrate Christmas in Nigeria at Iyana – Ira, Badagry area on Dec. 17.

It was learnt that the suspects subjected the victim to tortuous search and interrogation, where they discovered the sum of money with him.

They were alleged to have bundled him into their patrol vehicle to Ijanikin police station where they seized his money and invited a bureau de change operator to exchange the CFA currency into Naira equivalent.

NAN gathered that having satisfied they had subdued their victim with a threat, they allegedly released him and gave him N2000 out of his money, to enable him locate his Lagos residence.

It was further learnt that the victim, after regaining freedom from his alleged police captors, told his family all he went through, which led to a complaint to Area ‘K’ Commander, ACP Hope Okafor.

ACP Okafor was said to have intervened by recovering the stolen money and arrested the erring policemen for interrogation. (NAN)

  1. These are the set of idiotic policemen giving Nigeria Police bad names. Kidnappers in uniform. What a shame to this country.

  2. We thank God on his behalf that he was not shot by those moron. If not, it might have been another story by now.

  3. If policemen should start kidnapping/adultnapping and steating, then what will be the work of those tagged as ‘kidnappers’…it’s time we start policing the police.
