A robbery victim, Ayodele Oduniyi, says a cop identified only as Fatai, from the Area M Police Division, has been reluctant to arrest his assailants because he refuses to pay him a N15,000 bribe.
He said Fatai requested the sum to “motivate” his......colleagues so that the robbers could be tracked down, adding that he was only able to give him N2,000.
It was learnt that the policeman was assigned to Oduniyi after hegh reported at the station that some robbers raided his apartment on Mati Olumuyiwa Street, Orelope, in the Egbede area of Lagos around 3pm on September 1, 2015.
The robbers were said to have made away with valuables and his Automated Teller Machine card, which they later used to withdraw N100,000 from his bank account.
According to source, Fatai had promised to send a letter to the bank to release the visuals of the person who carried out the transaction, but had yet to do so, giving excuses whenever the victim met with him.
Recounting the incident to our correspondent, Oduniyi said the fleeing robbers attacked two other houses on the fateful day, but were only successful at his apartment before residents raised the alarm.
