A Nigerian police officer identified as Amid Yuletide has swam against the unfavourable perception of Nigerian cops during the holiday season.
The police officer was seen in a viral video presenting bags of rice to a tricyclist and his passengers after stopping them for a check: a gesture that is thought to be nearly unthinkable in the country.
His actions are comparable to those of his colleague, who a few days ago handed a tricyclist and his passengers a sum of 5,000 Naira.
Many Nigerians have expressed their gratitude to the officer, while others have expressed concern about the emerging practice among the country’s police personnel over the Christmas season.
