Police Dismiss Policewoman Caught On Camera Receiving Bribe




Two traffic police women, Corporals Elizabeth Itolor and Jennifer Azingbe, who were videotaped receiving N100 bribe from a bus driver in Lagos, have been dismissed from the Nigeria Police Force. Itolor and Azingbe, attached to the Makinde Police Division, were said to have received their dismissal letters on Wednesday.

The Police Provost Unit of the Lagos State Command concluded an orderly room trial of the policewomen last week. Both women were said to have spent nine years in the police as they were recruited in 2004. Itolor and Azingbe got their dismissal letters at their duty post.

The video, which had over 40,000 views, and generated public outrage on social media, led to the arrest of the women. In the video, the driver was seen trying to negotiate his way out of a bribe. But despite the driver’s pleas, the policewoman refused to let the bus move from the spot after taking on more passengers.

Angry, the driver was heard saying, “Don’t abuse me because of N100. How much is N100? Me I don pass N100.” The policewoman, who was sitting in the bus to prevent the driver from taking off, retorted, “E no concern me. Pay me my own money.”

The driver then instructed his conductor to hand over N100 to the policewoman. The policewoman subsequently alighted from the bus and was later seen in the video walking away with her colleague.
