According to Sahara Reporters, Oluwaseun said the incident last week in front of the station at Ring Road area while he and his brother were coming from a friend’s place.

The graduate of Building Technology said they were treated like criminals and forced to pay N100,000 because he was looking ‘too fresh’ to be a builder.

“They checked my car papers and found everything complete. A rogue officer who later identified himself as Benjamin asked what I do for a living and I told him I work with an estate firm.

“So he asked me to unlock my phone but I initially refused. So, they threatened to kill me and my younger brother if I refused to cooporate with them. They brought out a ‘shocker’ (taser), so I obliged. They then checked my phone and found nothing incriminating, but insisted I was a fraudster and was too fresh to be a builder.

“I was asked to pay the sum of N1,000,000 but I told them I didn’t have up to that amount. Later on, they asked me to pay N500,000 even without telling me what I did wrong.

“I begged them but they insisted on collecting N100,000. Meanwhile, my brother just collected over N100,000 he wanted to go and pay in the bank as his school fees; I think that was what that officer Ben saw that made him to suspect us. They told us to go and bring the cash and they removed N100,000 from it.

“He collected my number as well and threatened to kill me in case I inform anybody about what happened.”
