We’re probing video of officer extorting commuters with POS machine says Police


The Nigeria Police Force has said the video showing a person wearing a police uniform and holding a point of sale machine to allegedly extort commuters is being investigated.


The police reacted to the video via its verified Twitter handle, @policeNG, on Friday.

Recall that in a video that surfaced on Twitter on Thursday, a man was heard arguing with an officer that he would not make his ATM card available.

The officer was also shown holding a POS machine.

The police tweeted, “The @policeNG has commenced investigations to unravel the authenticity of the video, location of incident and identity of persons captured in the viral video where some persons in police uniform were captured, allegedly with POS machine and demanding ATM card from a member of the public.

“Members of the public with relevant information that could assist police investigators are enjoined to kindly DM @policeNG or furnish same via any of our confidential channels e.g ressforabuja@police.gov.ng

“The IGP condemns all acts of corruption by public servants, particularly police officers and is committed to bringing to book any officer found wanting in this regard.” Punch
