On Saturday morning, a video went viral where the officer was seen inside a vehicle, asking the motorist to provide the money quickly so that he would be allowed to go, while also giving the account number where the money would be paid.
This got to the attention of the Force Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Police, Muyiwa Adejobi, on Saturday morning, who condemned the act of the officer, describing it as shameless while also promising to fish him out.
However, while giving an update on the issue, Hundeyin disclosed on Saturday evening that the officer has been identified, giving his name as ASP Luka Bashayi, serving at the Ogudu Area Command.
He wrote: “We will not gloss over this. He is ASP Luka Bashayi, serving at Ogudu Area Command. Meanwhile, Lagos State Police Command has commenced actions on this.”
