The Oyo State Police Command said it has apprehended the policemen sighted in a now-viral video demanding money from a female biker who was on a tour of Nigeria from the Netherlands.
The command, in a post on X on Thurday, said the operatives will face disciplinary actions.
“Viral video portraying the regrettable misconduct of certain policemen along Moniya-Iseyin Road has been accessed. All those involved have been apprehended for immediate disciplinary actions. Supervision will be increased. Please report any misconduct to Xsquad on +2348023535470,” the post read.
In the video, the officers had flagged down the biker, asking her where she was from and where she was heading.
The Dutch replied that she was from the Netherlands and she was on her way to Abuja, apparently surprising the two officers.
Interacting with the biker further in pidgin, the officers said: “Wetin you bring come? Wetin you won give me. O yah give me something nah.”
The tourist appeared not to comprehend the officers’ message until they clearly said, “Give me money, money,” to which she asked, “Why?”
The 1:26-minute video drew reactions from Nigerians who felt embarrassed by the policemen’s actions.
