- The officer seemed to have suggested to the man to change to naira, whatever foreign currency he had, so he could give him some money
An Nigerian policeman has been caught on camera begging for a bribe from a man who claimed to be a Spaniard.
The video of the incident surfaced on Twitter when Abubakar Suleiman (@suleimana) shared it on Saturday.
The man who is on a motorbike could be heard telling the officer that he rode all the way from Spain to Nigeria.
The man’s face is not shown in the video, apparently because he used a body cam which enabled him to capture the happenings on the highway.
“What did you bring for us?” The officer queried as soon as the man told him he crossed into Nigeria “today”.
The man said he did not have cash or anything on him, other than his credit card.

“Are you telling me you don’t have anything for us?” the officer said.
“No, I am sorry,” the man answered.
The officer seemed to have suggested to the man to change to naira, whatever foreign currency he had, so he could give him some money.
The man appeared to have become impatient. He told the officer he needed to continue his journey as he was only riding through Nigeria and needed to get to Cameroon, Gabon, Congo, and South Africa.
But the officer insisted on getting a bribe from him. “Money, money, cash,” said the officer who seemed to have had some difficulty conversing with the man.
“Okay, I have to go,” the man said at the end of the one minute, forty-seven seconds clip.
A police Complaint Response Unit (@PoliceNG_CRU), in its response to the clip, tweeted: “This video was earlier intercepted via other SM platform and investigation already initiated, please.”
