Sharing is caring!

The Nigeria Police Force, Lagos State Command has revealed the antics of some desperate Nigerians asking the Police to declare them wanted so they could apply for asylum abroad.

The spokesperson of the Lagos State Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, made this revelation in a statement via his X handle.

According to Hundeyin he was shocked when a Nigerian asked that the Police declare him wanted. This was so that he could apply for asylum.

He stated: ‘‘Please, declare me wanted!’ I was stupefied. I blinked and looked at him again. ‘What did you say,’ I asked.

“’ Please, I want you to declare me wanted,’ he repeated.

“’ Why do you want to be declared wanted,’ I inquired, amused.

“’ Actually, I am applying for asylum at XYZ embassy. During the interview, I told them that I was being persecuted to the point of being declared wanted by the Police.

“’ They now asked for evidence of the ‘wanted’ declaration. I can easily do the artwork but I know they will come and verify.

“‘That is why I want it from the source’,”

Hundeyin wrote.
