Police react to video of officer saying any youth driving Benz is a Yahoo boy
The Nigerian Police Force have reacted to a video which shows one of their officers harassing Stephen Chukwude, an Eyimba FC player, for driving a Mercedes Benz.
The video shows the police officer rudely speaking to the footballer and accusing him of being a Yahoo boy.
Despite the Eyimba FC player showing him all the necessary documents to show he’s a responsible Nigerian, the police officer wouldn’t have any of it.
According to him, the footballer must be a Yahoo boy because he drives a Mercedes Benz which is what all Yahoo boys drive.
The video sparked an outrage on social media over the kind of orientation displayed by the police officer, thereby drawing the attention of the Nigerian Police Force .
In reaction, the force tweeted:
“The attention of the @PoliceNG has been drawn to this clip on social media, the IGP implores anyone with credible information concerning this video to avail the Force to aid investigations and appropriate disciplinary measures”.
