A disturbing video has emerged, depicting Nigerian policemen soliciting money from a female biker on a journey from the Netherlands. The unsettling encounter occurred along Moniya Road in Oyo State, sparking widespread apprehension regarding Nigeria’s global reputation and the behavior of its law enforcement.

Captured in a 1:26-minute video, the officers halt the Dutch tourist, questioning her about her origin and destination. Expressing surprise upon learning she is heading to Abuja, they explicitly request money in pidgin English. The confusing interaction leaves a bitter impression on the tourist and paints a disheartening picture of Nigerian law enforcement for the world to witness.

Prompting Investigation and Action

The video drew the attention of Nigeria Police Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, who responded to its circulation by a user identified as #Oyoaffairs. Adejobi urged the Oyo State police command to investigate the incident promptly, emphasizing the necessity for swift and transparent action. He also notified the Oyo State Public Relations Officer, underscoring the imperative need to take disciplinary measures against the implicated officers to uphold the highest standards of conduct.

This incident raises serious concerns about Nigeria’s global image. Such occurrences have the potential to adversely impact the country’s tourism sector and international relations. Moreover, it underscores the urgent need for reforms within Nigeria’s police force to prevent actions that could tarnish the nation’s reputation and compromise the safety of both its citizens and visitors.
