Nigerian Police sacks, de-kits bribe-seeking policeman in viral video

The Nigerian Police Force has dismissed a bribe-seeking policeman identified as Inspector Richard Gele, the Police Inspector caught in a viral video dignifying and justifying extortion of members of the public and official corruption which trended from the 25th of July, 2022.

Inspector Gele was captured about 3 days ago in a viral video bragging about collecting bribes and how his oga permit it.

Inspector Gele said; “I Don’t Collect Change. I Will Collect Better Money And Not Hide It. Even IG Knows I’m Collecting Money.”

The officer was then offered an undisclosed amount, but he declined it and stated he only collects a large sum. The bribe-seeking officer also declared that even the IGP knows he collects money from motorists.

Precisely 3 days after the incident, the Nigerian police force have identified the erring inspector and subsequently dismissed him from service.
