South African Police Prefer Arresting Nigerians

Research revealed that South African police prefer to arrest Nigerians because Nigerians are much more eager to offer bribes.

Also, whilst an average South African offers a bribe of R20 to a Metro Cop, a Nigerian man is likely to offer R100.

It is common to see Metro Cops flagging down cars driven by Nigerians because chances are high that the corrupt cop may get a bribe from the corrupt Nigerian dude.

Bribing the police is a common phenomena in Nigeria. Most Nigerians living in South Africa have added to the bribery culture in South Africa.

Furthermore, a Metro cop anonymously said: “You are more likely to charge a Nigerian than a South African. The Nigerian  may not have drivers’ licence or he may be using a drivers’ licence from home”.

A Nigerian journalist said Metro cops have stopped him many times “just because they can see that I’m Nigerian. It’s worse when you wear your traditional outfit. You can be easily identified”.

 

Another reason Nigerians easily bribe is because they are often impatient and in a hurry.

Pinky Ngamlana, who is married to a Nigerian said: “Even when a Nigerian has not committed any offence, he may give the cop money so that the cop doesn’t waste his time. If you want to get money from a Nigerian, just delay him a little”.
