He said that drivers who delay in cooperating with the officers have their car keys seized, delaying mostly students of Lagos State University (LASU).
Lagos police spokesman, Bala Elkana, has not made an official statement on the incident.
That’s the only thing they know. You can successfully convey firearms and hard drugs without questioning, interrogation or thorough searching.
All you need to do is squeeze N50 into their hands and you’re good to go.
Bribery and extortion” that is what they know how to do best.
