Police Dismiss Special Constabularies Demanding Money From Dutch Tourist In Oyo


The Nigeria police have dismissed two special constabularies for demanding money from a Dutch tourist in Oyo state.

Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Hamzat Adebola pronounced their dismissal, on Thursday, at the state’s Police Headquarters in Eleyele, Ibadan.


The two special constabularies, Jimoh Lukmon and Kareem Fatai, who were on duty along Moniya-Iseyin road were seen in a viral video demanding money from the tourist who told them she was en route to Abuja.


Recall that in a less than two-minute viral video, the officers flagged down the female rider along Iseyin road in Oyo and asked where she was headed.

The Dutch rider responded by saying she was from the Netherlands and that she was heading to Abuja, the country’s capital city.

The special constables asked the rider to offer them money or anything in her possession.


“Give me something nah. How is family? Wetin you bring come? Wetin you wan give me?” the officers asked the foreigner.


The response from the Dutch rider showed that she did not understand what the officers were requesting for in Pidgin English.

To clarify what they said, the officers said: “Give me money” and the Dutch rider responded with: “Why?”.
