Nigerian writer and filmmaker, Jade Osiberu has frowned at the unprofessional response she got from a police officer after she reported a fraudulent case.
According to her, a fake grocery seller on Instagram had scammed her of the sum of N50,000, in which she decided to report to the police because she had evidence to show.
She claims the police officer she spoke with told her to let it go because it will cost more to investigate the crime.
Recounting the experience on Twitter, she wrote: “Got scammed by a fake IG grocery vendor (50k ff), never happened to me b4. Called a police contact telling him have the guy’s account details so it should be an easy arrest. He said, just let it go. It’ll cost more to “help/empower” the investigation. Naija is a shit hole.”
