CHAI!! Police Demands N80,000 From Detainee For Reporting Neigbour’s Death



A 32-year-old mother of two has been told by police operatives to cough out N80,000 bail money or risk going to jail after being detained at the Denton Police station for allegedly reporting the death of her neighbour to the police.

The woman, identified as Gbemisola, a resident of the Tapa Community of Ebute-Meta area of Lagos State, was allegedly still in police custody because of her inability to pay N80,000 to bail herself.

Vanguards reports that Gbemisola’s ordeal started sometimes in November when the apartment of one of her neighbours called Timothy was gutted by fire.


It was gathered that the mother of two was said to have raised alarm that attracted others who assisted in putting out the fire.

According to one of the residents of the community who spoke to Vanguard on the condition of anonymity, the arrest and detention of the woman came as a surprise to everybody in the area.

She said: “We were sleeping when the deceased’s neighbour raised alarm about the fire incident; we all rushed to the building and put out the fire. Few days later, there was serious odour enveloping the community. So, some concerned youths went into the deceased’s apartment only to find his bloated body on the floor and that was what prompted the neighbour to report the matter at the station.

“When we heard about the woman’s arrest and detention, we went to the station in an attempt to persuade the Investigation Officer to release her only for us to be told that we should pay N80,000 or she would be charged to court for murder and arson.

“We are appealing to Governor Ambode to come to the aid of the woman because she is suffering over what she knew nothing about.”

  1. Bribe is a normal routine for the police officers at Denton Police Station, especially their DPO, Saheed Quadry. He never treats a case without taking bribes and He cannot even speak good English or write proper English. Their DPO is a disgrace to Nigerian Police Force, he should be scrutinised. Press has a lot to do in the restructuring of Nigerian police Force, so that the bad eggs can be kicked out of the Police Force.
