An image of an Asian man holding a gun as he posed for a snapshot while the Nigerian police officer who gave him the gun stood behind as an onlooker has gone viral.
The visual was shared on Facebook and Nigerians are upset at the sheer ignorance and utter disregard in appropriate discharge of duty by this officer.
He boldly stood beside the Asian man and even offered a smile like he was ‘REALLY PROUD’ of ‘giving a man his gun to take a photo with”. Who even took this image? They never stopped to think, ‘what if he decides to shoot us or go on a killing spree?‘.
While some might argue the officer and whoever took the image probably knew the mid-twenties looking man, others insist he must have collected payment ie bribe and didn’t think of the implication of his greed.
Ephatta Channel Maybe his just 1 of the silly drunkards in his family whom was given a privilege to become a police officer,africans easily lost thier spirit of leadership&sell it cheaply all in d name of trying to be publicly foolish!Just Imagine……Mtweeeeech
Morennikeji Badipe Why would you trust anybody with your protection that government gave you. However, this is the same person the government a signed to protect people. Hopefully he will not hand over his gun to wrong person.
Kayode Sola Ige I think he has taking bribe from this man
Is there any reason that justifies the police officer handing over a loaded service gun to a civilian to take a picture? What’s bursting many Nigerians heads is his audacity to even smile. Any details leading to his exposure would be welcome.
