Kayode Popoola, Deputy Superintendent of Police, has been arrested in Lagos.
The police officer and members of his team were arrested for collecting a bribe of N100,000.
Adebayo Taofiq, Head of Public Affairs, Lagos State Environmental and Special Crimes Task Force, said this in a statement on Sunday.
Popoola is the leader of the Task Force team operating in the Lekki-Ajah axis of Lagos.
Taofiq said the bribe was paid by one Didi Ekanem.
She owns a Toyota Venza with the APP number 775 GJ and was caught driving against traffic around the Lekki Ajah highway.
“After the transfer, the vehicle was handed over to Ekanem. They will be sent back to the Lagos State Police Command for further disciplinary action ”. Taofiq said.
The spokesperson confirmed that the chair of the task force, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, ordered the arrest of Kayode and others.
Egbeyemi warned motorists to desist from driving against traffic, adding that the culprits will be charged before the Lagos State Mobile Court.
He told citizens to stop luring agents with money and reminded them that both the donor and the recipient are accountable under the law.
