Citizen reporters, Segun O'Law followed police officers in Lagos secretly filming their arbitrary exercise of power and abuse of police privileges.
I once took a way in Lagos somewhere on lagos island going to VI just because I saw other motorists taking the same way. There were policemen at the junction and I saw quite clearly that they allowed the motorists to pass so I decided to do the same but to my chagrin, I was stopped and i asked why. They told me did I not see it was one way, I said I saw it but I saw other motorists taking it and i thought maybe there was an emergency, the policeman replied and told me that "can t i see that those guys are soldiers" I was infuriated and I put my car into drive immediately and I accelerated, one of them tried to block me, i hit him, he ended up breaking my side mirror and I could not care at all, they gave chase and after they saw it was futile they left me alone. I think we should start causing civil disobedience, it is our way forward in that country. I have since left that country because I could not stand it anymore. Segun please keep it up
Thank you Segun for bringing this on-board to sensitive people and the out side world. Corruption is the problem and re-branding our way of doing things.
Don't expect anything good from Jonathan.Nigeria will continue to deteriorate as long as Jonathan remains in power.
All what we need to put Nigeria back on the right track is not Technocrats but clamping down ruthlessly and massively on corruption,it's not rocket science and every other thing will follow suit.
Obviously not withthis government or PDP or Tinubu's ACN or Tinubu's merger party,basic.
Wonder what his commanding officer would have to say about this. Did he cross the line and become a 'civvy' when he chose to drive a commercial bus and tout for passengers in a civilian setting or are soldiers allowed to moonlight in Nigeria? And if so, do they still retain a military privilege while at it?
Good job!Segun, you have done wonderfully well.
Please improve on your English: diction, grammar and everything are completely out of place.
Good work and journalism you are doing though.
