Lagos State Police Officers Rob Doctor Of N45,000 While Returning From An Emergency!!

Officers from the Area M Command of Lagos State Police Command have been accused by a Lagos medical practitioner, who identified himself as Dr Itan, of stealing N45,000 from him.

The Policemen stopped him while returning from an emergency around 1am accompanied by his wife.

The doctor who works with a private hospital in the Iyana Ipaja area of the state said his explanations on where he was coming from was rebuffed by the men, who demanded N100,000 from him or he would be charged with robbery.

Itan said after being detained for about three hours, the policemen led his wife to the nearest Automated Teller Machine, where she was forced to withdraw N45,000 for them.

The doctor said four other motorists, who were also stopped, were forced to part with various sums of money.

He said, ''I live in Ikeja, while the hospital where I work is at Iyana Ipaja. I was at home on April 9 when a nurse called me that we had a patient that had problem passing urine. The man was in pain and I recommended some drugs.

   ''But the nurse called back that the situation was getting critical and I decided to drive down. I got to the hospital with my wife; and by some minutes past 1am, we were done.

   ''I was driving back when I sighted a road block by a police team at Moshalashi Roundabout, Iyana Ipaja. I saw different Rapid Response Squad vehicles at the junction. They asked me to park and I did.

   ''They asked why I was wandering at that time of the night and I told them that I was a medical doctor and I had an emergency which I had to respond to. I showed them my identity card and complimentary cards. The policemen checked my vehicle documents and driving licence, which were complete.

   ''But one of the policemen said anybody could be a doctor during the day and a robber at night. I told them that if they had issues with where I was coming from, they could follow me back to the hospital. But they refused.''
