A video has emerged on social media showing the moment a policeman collected a bribe from a motorist and told him to lie about the amount to his colleagues.
The yet-to-be-identified policeman was however seen in the four-minute video arguing with the motorist in Pidgin.
The bribe-taking policeman sought for N20k from the motorist who held out a wad of 1,000 naira notes.
The date and location of this act could not be established, but nonetheless, the act has been deemed very bad for the image of the Nigerian police.
