A LASTMA Officer has been called out by a motorist for allegedly stealing a sum of N170,000 in her car.
According to the lady who took to Instagram to narrate the incident, she was flagged down by the officers at a junction for committing a traffic offense. While sorting the ‘issue’ with the officers, one of them entered into her vehicle to drive it off to an unknown destination.
After allegedly parting with N20,000, she later discovered N170,000 she had kept in her vehicle was missing already. She identified the officer who allegedly took the cash as Officer Odusanya.
Read her narration below:
I was on my way to market driving along marina when a lastma vehicle overtook my vehicle and stopped in my front and told me I committed an offence. I asked which offense and they asked me to show my drivers license, which I did and the officer went with it. In my bid to get it back officer ODUNSANYA.A entered my vehicle and started driving it. I quickly jumped in and asked where he was driving my car to.
I tried settling the matter with them and ask him to tell me my offense but he came up with nothing and still had me settle them with 20k .
After they left I got to a car park and I found out the #170k (one hundred and seventy thousand Naira) I had in my vehicle has gone missing. Please the Wold should tell officer ODUNSANYA.A and his college to give me back my money
I am saying this for the world to see the level of injustice and robbery we face from the hands of the same people that are suppose to be protecting our lives.
