A handcuffed man has been captured on tape narrating how he escaped police custody at night after being arrested.
The young Nigerian man was arrested and detained for smoking marijuana (weed), but he managed to make a great escape while still in handcuffs.
He boasted about being a swift and smart alec who outsmarted the officers that arrested him.
According to the suspect, he was smoking marijuana in a truck when police officers nabbed and handcuffed him.
He said they were transporting him to the station when he found a chance to alight from their van and fled without looking back.
The young man was sharing his ordeal with some ladies who filmed him while his hand was still cuffed.

In other news, a Nigerian man identified as Ibrahim Kazeem, has narrated how police officers allegedly harrassed and extorted his friend, who works remotely.
He said his friend just moved to a new place in Ilorin, Kwara state, but because he always stays indoors to do some work, it raised suspicion.
Neighbours apparently reported the man to police, who then stormed his house to question him for always being inside.
He explained that he was a remote worker, but they did not believe there was any concept like ‘working from home’.
According to Kazeem who narrated the incident on Twitter, his friend’s phone was seized to prevent him from further contacting his lawyer for help.
He wrote; ‘‘My friend moved to his house in the outskirts of Ilọrin 3 months ago. Police went to his home this morning that he was reported to be staying indoors 2much.
He told dem he’s a remote worker but they said there’s nothing remote about working. They took his phone so he won’t be able to follow up with his lawyer after reaching him.
They left him this night after harassing and extorting him. Even in your house, you can sit down and injure your neck(read in yoruba). A new low for the men in Aṣọ opo. Sigh.”
