A senior police officer identified as Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi has been slammed by Nigerians after stating that he escaped arrest by a Road Safety Officer when he was caught breaking a traffic law.
Adejobi, who is the spokesperson of the Nigerian Police Force had revealed via Twitter that he was driving when he was stopped by a Road Safety officer who wanted to apprehend him for making phone calls while driving.
However, when the security personnel heard him telling the DPO to put a person in a cell. he immediately let him go.
Adejobi went on to state that to every rule, there is an exception.
He had written: “I was driving today in Abuja, and one road safety officer who wanted to arrest me for using phone, heard me instructing the DPO to put one person in d cell, he just saluted me, and passed me.
“This is to say ‘to every rule, there must be an exception to save some situations’. Lol.”
His tweet generated mixed reactions, with many accusing him of boasting about getting away with impunity.
Social media users insisted that if such an action was carried out by a civilian he would have been arrested and fined but the security personnel got away with it and also came online to boast about it.
