CorrectNG had reported a similar news about a group of young men that took matters into their hands after being labelled drug addicts and getting assaulted by police officers.
It was gathered that men of the Bayelsa state police command accused them of being drug users and extorted them of N5,000.
However, the youths seemed to have summoned courage all of a sudden when the policemen increased the amount requested to N30k. They challenged the men in uniform over their unreasonable demand.
The incident reportedly happened in Amasoma on Monday, 5th of December 2022.
A video which trended on the internet showed the moment the young men pounced on the officers who were armed.
An eyewitness narrated how the police officers spotted one of the boys licking sweet and thought he was taking drugs. He was accosted together with his friends by the security agents that accused them of drug abuse.
“The boys were not using drugs but these policemen accosted them and labeled themdDrug users. They packed all of them into their police van and ordered them to pay N5K for their release.
The boys paid the money but the greedy policemen increased the money to N30K which led to a retaliation by the victims who insisted that it’s either the policemen k**l them or they won’t pay a dime,” the source said.
