Nigerian police are used to collecting money from people driving vehicles as a means of survival. The gullible Nigerian-Police has abandoned their purpose which is internal security and embraced collecting money from every impatient driver.
What got me think more is that even some good Christians still offer police money in a bid to allow them rush to where only them know.
Something happened this month being October as I routed from Onitsha main market to my destination. I was in a bus then on getting to a police checkpoint, the corps waved on the bus I was travelling with to stop, the obedient driver stopped and the police man stretched forth is hand as a christian in church awaiting God’s blessing.(As someone that wants to receive something).
The driver of the bus told the Police man he has no money_the expression on the drivers face already prophesied that he doesn’t want to give the police man money; how would an innocent man give police bribe_giving any security agency money on the road is bribery and any form of bribe is sin against man and God. The corps started searching our bus trunk and asked the driver to present his whole documents.
The driver did, fortunately and unfortunately for the passengers and the corps, every document portrays the driver is a good citizen, thankGod for the passengers exercise of patience. Because the driver refused to bribe made the police fulfill their main objective which is security. What a country:sad:
Other commercial and non commercial vehicles were passing and giving the police bribe normally called “something”, The corps allowed them pass without searching them. This made me ask myself a question_ what if these people that weren’t checked have some dangerous ammunition or have a victim they kidnapped right there in the car? So the victims would just end up untimely just because the corps forfeited his purpose for just less than N100.
I even saw some buses with stickers and crucifixes that portray Christianity giving police bribe(of-course that money people give is bribe). Where are they rushing to? Why would you be in such a hurry? How can you still pray to God for protection and preservation from accidents and still give police bribe? Do you expect God to answer your prayers?
If you keep giving police money, you are encouraging them to support their immoral work, am sure no good christian and citizen would support immorality and decadence. One of the good ways to improve security which you pray to God to do is to stop giving bribes. If every Christian and citizen would stop it, the corps will be frustrated and embrace their main purpose which is security in the interior. This will also make them check virtually every vehicles. Perhaps they will track down that murderer with deadly weapon that want to assassinate you. Do you see how well this can go in security improvement? Please save your life and someone else’s life by stopping bribery.
