An American citizen was stopped at the Monument bank premises in Egbeda, Lagos, for wearing green cargo trousers – which is considered to be a military outfit.
The whole exchange was recorded secretly by what seems to be a camera disguised as an electronic cigarette.
In the almost four-minute long video, the yet-to-be-identified armed policeman demands more U.S. dollars from the Americans, even suggesting going to the currency exchange bureau himself to convert the naira to dollars.The police officer had a rifle with him.
At some point in the video, he threatens to take the Americans to the police station should they refuse to pay: “Bring better thing, that one is not money, I don tell you finish o!” he can be heard saying.
The video has gone viral since it was posted on the Youtube.
