Nigerian activist, Deji Adeyanju has revealed why policemen on the road do take bribes.
Deji Adeyanju, a fearless activist was once imprisoned last year during the campaigns period of the just concluded general election – over his peaceful protest against police involvement in politics.
One thing you should know about Deji Adeyanju is that he shakes the table regardless of who is sitting on it.
Wonder why the policemen on the highway usually take stipends/bribe from motorists, despite series of cautions ?
Here’s why. Comrade Deji put the reason behind the unjustified actions of the highway policemen in his words.
“Do you know that the budget of
@PoliceNg for last year to police the nation was about N320billion but they agreed to give them N25billion but only N5billion was released to them? And we will later wonder why Policemen on the road are taking bribes.
How do you give N5billion to police a nation of about 200million people and you expect the police not to engage in extortion and bribe taking? Some hopeless agencies of government spend N5billion monthly. And more than half of the policemen are guarding politicians & big men.
We can shout all our #EndSARS and #ReformPoliceNG but if we don’t stop the corruption by the elite of Nigeria and demand an end to their Criminal Enterprise, we are only wasting our time. Nothing will ever change.”
