“Why i am writing this is basically not because of me, but because we have a messed up & unprofessional set of people being employed without proper process and orientation.
& shoes, took us inside, while they wrote down our names, and went out for second parade.
I saw alot of people, both female & male, inwhich more were still being brought in by different units. I over heard some saying they picked them from Ikorodu, OniPanu, Mushin, Oshodi…
Bariga & Ketu etc.
One of the girls said she has been there for 2days now, cause she didn’t agree to sleep with one of the policemen.
We were treated as criminals, they took us to the passage of the cell, told us to sit on the floor, while more people were brought in.
They gave us our phones to call someone, one by one, it was in the process i took those pictures, inwhich one of them noticed and requested for my phone, but was smart enough to do the needful, so i was unable to capture their faces.
To cut this story shot…
I was finally bailed by both of my friends that have been trying to reach me all through yesterday till today.
Note: We were so much that i couldn’t count. But an estimate of the money they made:
You will bail one person with “at least N10,000”, nd if you multiply…
N10,000×200 people, we have 2million. Also before you go into the station to see anyone, you will deposit N1,000 at the gate.
I can not express this more as everything that happened is still funny to me, cause this is my first time ever, sleeping over in a police…
station, combined with how messy this one is.
This is just to create awareness of the mess the society is in, cause i believe there are still some people that will spend the next 5 to 7 days in that station.
