Police investigates Lagos police station, after ICIR bail-for-sale investigation

FOLLOWING the undercover investigation carried out by Fisayo Soyombo sponsored by The ICIR and Cable, the Nigerian Police Force has confirmed an investigation into the alleged #PoliceBailForSale which occurred at Pedro Police station in Shomolu, Lagos state.

This was disclosed on “Your View”, a breakfast tv show on TVC, on Wednesday by Police spokesperson, Frank Mba, during a live phone interview on the programme.



    He said a team had been set up to investigate the matter assuring the public that officers involved in the shady practices at the police station would be brought to book if indicted.

    In a tweet, TVC also confirmed the statement of the police spokesperson.

    Frank Mba, however, did not answer phone calls and a text message sent to him ahead of this publication.

    The undercover reporting into the extortion ring at the police station has been generating ripples on social media prompting the police authorities to intervene in the matter.
