The Nigerian Police has recently shared the news and photos of the dismissal and de-kitting of a policeman who was seen in a viral video glorifying bribery and extortion. The news and photos were shared on the official Twitter page of the Nigerian Police Force on the 29th of July 2022.

It would be recalled that on the 25th of July 2022, a video had gone viral on social media and in the video, a policeman later identified to be Mr Richard Gele could be seen saying he does not collect change and that he collects a reasonable amount of money as bribe.

The Nigerian Police Force revealed that the affected policeman was attached to the Police Mobile Force squadron at Okene, Kogi state and that he had been deployed to the Itobe – Anyigba road for the safety of road users when the incident happened.

According to the Police Force, Mr Richard joined the Nigerian Police Force in the year 2000 and that he is an indigene of Benue State. He has, however, been handed over to the Kogi state Commissioner of Police for further necessary action, according to the Police.
