  1. Some boys were accosted in a taxi around Anthony village, they were harassed by the police, they took them to Anthony police station and forced them to transfer 70k to one of the officers account. I know the taxi driver very well, he was angry but he could do nothing. This is becoming the norm, they are all over Lekki chasing boys in big cars. They are robbers.

  2. May be we should start killing police men any where u can find them. The problem with the Nigerian system is lack of attention to these kind of social problems until the masses begin to take the laws into their hands. Pls government should warn police men to desist from acts like this becos they may push the already suffering masses to a point where they will not had any choice than to retaliate. Ogwu
