“It’s the image of a lone police man I hold on to. He is chubby, affable ands wearing an helmet. When he stopped us in Edo state or shortly before we left Ondo state, Okey exhausted from all the checkpoint made to give him 200 naira, but he refused. He asked for our car papers, looked at them carefully, says that everything is completes and he adds ‘safe journey’. As we drove away I looked back wishing I knew his name” Chimanmanda Ngozi Adichie…..
You can’t know his name because he doesn’t exist. He is a mirage, a production of your fertile imagination. The only way Mike Okiro will believe your story is that you saw an angel dressed as a policeman, showing us what can be.
As at today, if a Nigeria policeman refuses bribe, don’t turn your back on him so you won’t be a victim of accidental discharge.
