Though some Nigerians might have sad stories of past experiences with some Nigerian security operatives, for @temmy_david, it has been a wonderful experience as she can’t thank naval officer Anfani Saint, enough for helping her out after her car broke down on Oriole Iganmu Bridge.
According to the lady, the naval officer who called mechanics to rewire her car, paid everyone with his own money and made sure she got home in one piece. Here’s what she wrote;
A week today I was saved on oriole Iganmu bridge by this naval officer who made sure I was fine till I got home. From calling mechanics to Rewire just to sure my vehicle was ok to move which they did but I was so scared on that bridge it was around after 10pm but shocked at the way he handled everything and settled everyone from his pocket.So much stories about uniformed men but I was proven wrong Thank you sir, God bless and protect your family. @saintdlite
Few months ago, a Nigerian Instagram user narrated how Lagos Rapid Response Squad shocked her and a friend after they had a flat tyre. According to her, the police officers showed up to save the day.
More surprising – when the lady and her friend offered to say thank you in cash, the officers refused and asked them to go spread the message instead that truly Police is your friend.
Read Bisola’s story below:
So while coming back from work today with four of my colleagues, we had a flat tyre just before 3rd mainland bridge around Simpson’s bridge, we all know dat z d wrongest place to have issues with your car, 2 guys already came to us to help.
Hmm, u know all dose guys na, d next thing we saw one RRS patrol van driving by. Of course we flagged dem down, not cos we believed in dem but just for safety sake. D officer beside d driver stopped and came down.
My colleague @gbo_lee explained what happened to him and amazingly this guy made
calls, another patrol van came by and he instructed two of the officers to stay with us and the remaining 2 drove my colleague with the tyre to fix it.
U know another amazing tin, dis same officer already instructed his guys to pay for fixing the tyre, like m still shocked. Dey refused any form of payment. Dey even refused to take pictures, my colleague had to take a sneak pic selfie.
All dey requested for was for us to share to the public that “police is your friend” we actually did a research and found out that our angel in officer form is none other than the commanding officer of Lagos RRS.
To think he was humble enough to do all dat, nigeria police has really changed #policeisyourfriend #rrs #lagos #ekoonibaje
