PO­LICE­MAN

Finweek English Edition - - IN BRIEF -

neg­a­tive.

I have lost count of t he bribes I have been asked for, whether for imag­ined traf­fic in­frac­tions or for no rea­son other than the day of the week.

The sen­tence I hear most of­ten from the mouth of a po­lice­man is, “What do you have for me?”

Af­ter two in­ci­dents where a po­lice pickup has sideswiped my car to try and force me off the road, the driv­ers I am most con­cerned about are po­lice of­fi­cers; the idea that they’re there for my pro­tec­tion now seems more than a lit­tle strange.

Po­lice bomb ex­perts sweep the scene of a twin sui­cide blast at Kano Line bus sta­tion in north­ern Nige­ria’s largest city of Kano on 24 Fe­bru­ary.
