October 22, (THEWILL) – Nigerian singer, Paul Okoye, better known as Rudeboy, has alleged widespread extortion of Lagos residents at midnight by police operatives.
The singer disclosed this in a post via his Instagram stories on Friday as he recounted his recent encounter with the police on his way to a nightclub.
The 39-year-old disclosed that during the outing, he endured several police barricades which slowed down the flow of traffic.
The singer also alleged that some of the police officers kept asking him for money at each point, saying that they indulge in begging with no shame.
“Went to the club for the first time after two years plus…mehn… for God sake, why are there traffic at 2-3 am barricades everywhere in Lagos Island,” he wrote.
“Police extortion every angle with no shame, mostly at club junctions and places that lead to people’s homes.
“Meanwhile, you can’t find them on roads leading to the third mainland bridge. ‘Big man, chairman, big boy, anything for us? Shi shi una no go see for my hand.”
