    Sad story but great storytelling (esp. for a police officer). Aliyu Giwa should be a playwright… He good.

    Interesting story. While i dont believe all police officers are bad, i still think this is one case in a million. There is no agency checkmating the nigerian police and in most cases corruption and greed runs from the topmost admin to the least. In my small experience, nigerian police is definitely not ur friend. But i will agree that there are exceptions

    So the friend faces court and the police only get demoted and face disciplinary action? How’s that even right?

    PS: Yes, this story is heartwarming but #PoliceIsStillNotYourFriend
