WONDERS: Policeman strips naked to escape arrest in Lagos
A policeman went naked on Thursday after he was caught while trying to defraud a woman of N50,000 for alleged traffic offence.
The incident happened at a United Bank of Africa (UBA) premises, Surulere, Lagos.
It was gathered that the policeman simply identified as Ogogor, who arrested a woman for alleged traffic offence had demanded N30,000 bribe from her, insisting that she would pay N50,000 should the matter get to the station.
He followed the woman to withdraw the N30,000 not knowing she had put a call across to a rights activist.
The Nation reported that the unnamed activist contacted the Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, who immediately sent policemen to the scene with an order to apprehend the errant personnel.
It was learnt that drama ensued as Ogogor ran under a vehicle parked within the premises when he saw policemen at the scene but was eventually caught, dragged out by his colleagues and arrested.
A police source said: “He became violent. He started tearing his uniform and went naked in public when he was dragged from underneath the vehicle.
“He striped to his pant to avoid being arrested but some area boys came to assist the policemen who came from the CP’s office to effect the arrest and they dragged him into the police van.”
Ogogor has been detained at the X-Squad unit at the police command until he is charged to court.
