The Lagos state police command has arrested two suspects for offering a bribe to the police to secure the release of two suspects and pervert the course of justice.
The police had earlier arrested an armed robbery suspect, Alabi Timothy, and a suspected cultist, Badmus Toheed, with a locally-made double barrel g*n and three cartridges.
A statement released by the spokesperson of the state police command, Adekunle Ajisebutu, says two men had approached the police command for the release of the two suspects. Adariku Sunday, 34, offered the sum of N400,000 bribe in cash to secure the release of the robbery suspect, Folorunso Akeem, 43, offered the sum of N100, 000 cash to secure the release of the suspected cultist. The police PRO stated that the uncompromising police officers in charge of the case rejected the bribe.
