Man who just returned from US remanded for taking pics of bribe-taking policewoman

An American returnee, Chima Ordu, has been remanded in prison after he was caught taking pics of a policewoman allegedly extorting money from motorists in the Isolo area of Lagos.

Chima was reported to be in a tricycle when he took snapshots of the policewoman at the Oludegun Junction, Isolo, last Wednesday.

He was, however, caught and apprehended by some colleagues of the policewoman, who damaged the phone with which he took the shots.

So it's now an offence to take pictures of an officer committing a crime?

Chima was said to have been arraigned before an Isolo Magistrate’s Court on one count of illegal taking of pictures of a law enforcement officer.

The 40-year-old pleaded not guilty to the charge and elected summary trial.

The Magistrate, Mrs. J.O.E. Adeyemi, granted him bail in the sum of N20,000 with one surety in like sum. He was remanded in custody pending when he would meet the bail conditions.

The case was adjourned till May 3, 2017.

Chima was allegedly asked to apologise for his action so the police could withdraw the case, but he maintained his ground, saying he didn’t do anything wrong.

    This question should be answer by the magistrate, if it is good for a police officer to take bribe.
