Police Officers Now Serve As Senior Conductor To Commercial Bus Driver In Lagos by Boyoorisha: 4:30pm On Mar 07, 2012
Bearly a month after the IGP directive banning checkpoints, Some police officers in Lagos now serve as senior conductor to commercial bus drivers. They go to parks in the morning with their kits waiting for commercial bus drivers to pick them, they occupy the front seat and will be with the driver all day long. By this, the driver can avoid paying tout (agbero) and LASTMA officials. This service is not for free, they pay such officers at the end of the day.
What is this country turning to?

They are mostly policemen of Akwa ibom and Bayelsa origin,if in doubt ask the drivers.
Re: Police Officers Now Serve As Senior Conductor To Commercial Bus Driver In Lagos by Boyoorisha: 3:53pm On Mar 08, 2012
The funny thing about this is that it is very difficult to accuse them of such as they can claim to be a passenger. Passenger without a destination!

Inasmuch as it is sad, but what do you expect of such men . . .  Some are family men, and some have kids and have to feed them and all that, and you expect them to survive on the peanut they are being paid.
With this being said, i still believe that some of the officers will still be bad even if they are paid millions a month, but i will agree that some of the officers are just looking for survival

I am sure they have destination, and it is called "Destination to feeding"

Re: Police Officers Now Serve As Senior Conductor To Commercial Bus Driver In Lagos by naijasexy(f): 4:19pm On Mar 08, 2012

Very True

This is not in anyway acceptable! You need to see the unholy relationship they share with these drivers, they drink ogogoro and smoke indian hemp together. This is unprofessional!

This one is not new.
Re: Police Officers Now Serve As Senior Conductor To Commercial Bus Driver In Lagos by stevenosa: 4:29pm On Mar 08, 2012
it has been on for a long time. When I use to drive Danfo way back in 1993 - 1994 or thereabout, we use to pick such "MEN" and at the end of the day we pay them off. take note that those who engage in such practice only do so when they are off duty.

Re: Police Officers Now Serve As Senior Conductor To Commercial Bus Driver In Lagos by ocelot2006(m): 4:40pm On Mar 08, 2012
Well, I don't see anything wrong with that. It sure beats the commercial checkpoints. At least they protect drivers from Area Boys and co.

Are you guys serious?
Re: Police Officers Now Serve As Senior Conductor To Commercial Bus Driver In Lagos by linearity: 7:05pm On Mar 08, 2012
This is a welcome news, at least it is market forces and current situations that created this needs and as long as the drivers are not been forced to engage the services of these policemen as 'senior conductors' it is great. Until the government deal with the issue of algeros, the drivers have to self-sustain.

This is no different than luxury buses employing the services of armed policemen to accompany their buses during their trips. Both saw a need and freely engaged free labor to safe-guide their investments.
