Nigerians in Midrand complain of exploitation at Police Station

Nigerians living in Midrand, Johannesburg, complain that they are not issued receipts when they pay for police clearance to be processed in Nigeria.

The complainants say they are issued receipts when they pay for South Africa police clearance documents only.

Paul Obinna, a Nigerian residing in Midrand says he has experienced the “alleged exploitation” three times this year.

“They should give us receipt when we pay for the police clearance documents that are sent to Nigeria. Are they refusing to give receipt because it is meant for Nigeria?, he queried furiously.

In an attempt to uncover the truth, nigeriansinsouthafrica reporter went to the Midrand police station recently to process the South African and Nigerian police clearance.

To his chagrin, he was only issued receipt for the police clearance to be processed in South Africa.

He asked the officer in charge for the receipt for the police clearance to be processed in Nigeria, the officer said receipts are not issued for police clearance that are to be processed in Nigeria.

The reporter was only given the documents he finger-printed and signed by the officer in charge.

Mike Dalemo, a Nigerian business man in Midrand says “They don’t give receipt for Nigerian police clearance. I don’t know why. I think South Africa police are learning corruption from Nigerian police”.
